The Kelowna RCMP is warning the public about a brazen assault that occurred in the Rutland area.

A woman was walking in the area of Dodd Road and Bach Road Nov. 28 just before 5 p.m, when an unknown man ran up and grabbed her in an inappropriate manner before fleeing on foot. This was done in the presence of two other people that the woman was walking with. The man was last seen in the area of Hemlock Road.

“The victim was not injured as a result of this assault,” Cpl Jocelyn Noseworthy of the Kelowna RCMP said in a press release. “But she was extremely shaken by the experience. We are urging the public to remain vigilant and report all suspicious or criminal activity immediately.”

The suspect is described as:

  • Caucasian male
  • approximately six feet tall
  • thin build

He was last seen wearing:

  • black non medical face mask
  • grey jacket with the hood up
  • blue jeans

Anyone with information is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-250-762-3300.
