February 05, 2015 - 4:02 PM

PENTICTON - RCMP are trying to figure out if a conversation between a man and a pregnant woman is related to a subsequent attempted robbery.

In a media release, Mounties say a 34-year-old man was walking in the alley of the 1400-block of Government Street at roughly 6:30 p.m., February 3 when a pregnant woman in her 20s approached and spoke to him. In his report to police, the man says the woman was First Nations. Moments after the woman left, the man says a green Suburban drove up behind him, stopped and two men exited. 

The man told police they demanded his wallet, but he resisted and a struggle ensued leaving the man with cuts to his right hand. 

The passenger of the Suburban is described as First Nations, 230 pounds, 5'10" with a lip ring while the driver is also First Nations, 5'10" tall, 270 pounds with a large belly. Both were in their 20s. 

Penticton RCMP would like to speak with the woman. 

Anyone with information can contact Penticton RCMP 250-492-4300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
