Man 'slashed' in downtown Kamloops: RCMP


One man was taken to hospital after he was "slashed" in downtown Kamloops last night.

Police were called to the 400 block of Lansdowne Street around 10:45 p.m., June 7, after a man was heard yelling for someone to call 911, according to an RCMP news release.

He and another man were arguing in an alley between 4 and 5 avenues before it escalated to an assault.

RCMP said he ran toward the street and called for help, telling officers he was "slashed with a weapon." Police didn't describe the extent of his injuries.

Paramedics took the victim to the hospital where he was treated for injuries that were non-life-threatening.

Kamloops RCMP described the suspect as a Caucasian man, who's roughly 30 years old and stands 5'8" tall. He has a shaved head and was dressed in all black with a backwards hat.

He was also with a Caucasian woman who had dirty blonde hair and a pink shirt, police said.

Anyone who witnessed or has information, including security video in the area, is asked to contact Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2023-20140.
