WEST KELOWNA - Police want to talk to a man after an alleged assault against a young girl in West Kelowna.

Kelowna RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey says in a press release two girls, aged 10 and 11, were riding their bikes in the 3600 block of Brown Road on Friday, Oct. 6 at approximately 1:30 p.m when they apparently startled a man walking along the sidewalk.

O’Donaghey says the man grabbed the older girl’s bike and wrist, who then fell into a lamp standard when he released his grip. The man said nothing after the incident and continued to walk southbound on Brown Road.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male in his 20s with reddish-brown, curly hair wearing large yellow headphones, a grey trench coat with jeans and brown riding boots.

O’Donaghey says the girl was not injured but police would like to talk to the man or anyone who witnessed the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Const. Leshia Clark of the West Kelowna RCMP at 250-768-2880.
