Penticton RCMP are asking for public assistance in identifying two suspects believed to have participated in a stabbing incident a week ago.

Officers responded to the 200 block of Main Street around 8:30 p.m., Jan. 7, on reports of two men fighting, according to an RCMP media release.

The officers arrived to find a male victim lying on the sidewalk suffering from an apparent stab wound. First aid was provided and the 27-year-old man was taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Video surveillance of two suspects has been obtained and police are hoping the public can help identify them.

"The motive for the assault isn’t clear, but officers do not believe this incident was random,” Penticton RCMP media liaison Const. James Grandy said in the release. “We’re asking for anyone who recognizes either suspect caught on video surveillance to contact us."

Investigators are asking anyone who can help identify either suspect, or has any information about the incident, to contact the Penticton RCMP at 250-492-4300.
