PENTICTON - A fight early Saturday morning in Penticton left a man bruised and bloodied.

RCMP spokesperson Cpl Don Wrigglesworth says officers separated two men fighting outside the Mule nightclub around 3:15 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 12.

A short time later, police were called to Westminster Avenue where a 28-year-old man was found bleeding from facial injuries, Wrigglesworth says. He had been involved in the earlier fight at the nightclub.

Witnesses said the man was jumped by three other men who were located nearby and arrested.

Wrigglesworth says Damien Keddie, 20, Thomas Kruger-Allen, 20, and Taish Desnomie, 19, were all charged with aggravated assault and have made an initial court appearance. Keddie was also found to be in breach of probation.
