KAMLOOPS - Police in Kamloops are looking for a woman who allegedly stabbed a man on Seymour Street last night.

Kamloops RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says in a news release a man left the 7-Eleven on Seymour Street at approximately 9 p.m. yesterday, Dec. 10, followed by a woman on a BMX bike who claimed he owed her money.

A man associated to the woman was following behind on foot, Shelkie says.

When the victim didn't produce any money, the woman allegedly stabbed him in the back with a knife. The victim fled, and the woman and man followed him until he went into a store on Victoria Street and emergency services were called.

Shelkie says the victim was taken to hospital with a non life-threatening stab wound.

The female suspect is described as having blonde, shoulder-length hair. There is no description of the man who was with her.
