KAMLOOPS - The man accused of trying to stab a man at Riverside Park this week won't be released from jail until at least the new year.

Daniel James Munro, 20, is facing charges of assault with a weapon and obstructing or resisting a peace officer after an alleged attack in Riverside Park earlier this week.

Court documents show Munro won't get a bail hearing until Jan. 11. He also has outstanding charges of breaching a conditional sentence order and breaching a probation order.

On Dec. 19 at approximately 9:50 p.m., two people were walking in Riverside Park when Munro allegedly approached them, took out a knife and unsuccessfully tried to stab them.

After failing to do that, Munro allegedly fled to the Overlanders Bridge where officers had to use a Taser during the arrest.

Police said in the news release Munro was previously known to them.

According to court records, Munro has previously been convicted of possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose and theft.
