Man stabbed and seriously injured in Kelowna attack

A 37-year-old man was stabbed in at a Kelowna mall and was at risk of bleeding to death on Sunday, May 28.

Kelowna RCMP were called just after 3 p.m. to the 2200 block of Harvey Avenue.

“Emergency Health Services was called immediately and the victim was transported to a local area hospital,” a Kelowna RCMP news release says. “The officers were advised by the medical staff that he had sustained a severe injury and would have bled to death if it was not for the quick response of the first responders and several bystanders who stepped in to assist. The victim remains in hospital where he continues to recover."

Police were told by witnesses that four men had been in a fight with the victim then fled on bikes in various directions.

“Surveillance collected at the scene provided officers with a clear description of the primary suspect,” the news release says. “A half an hour later the suspect was located and arrested for aggravated assault. He was later released with several conditions and will attend court at a later date.”
