Minutes after receiving a 911 call police were at the scene along with officers from the canine teams at the Vernon North Okanagan Police Dog Services.

Police attempted to track the suspect but he was not located.

The suspect is a Caucasian male, in his 50s, approximately six feet tall, with a slender build and grey hair. He was wearing black pants, a black hoodie and a black mask covering his nose and mouth.
