WEST KELOWNA – A West Kelowna resident was threatened with a knife when he interrupted a burglary yesterday, police say.

Shortly before 3 p.m. Dec. 4, RCMP were called to a report of an interrupted break and enter to a home in the 3400 block of Turnbull Road in the Glenrosa area.

RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey says the break and enter suspect produced a weapon when confronted by a local resident and fled the area on foot.

The resident was not injured.
