Woman in 60s jumped in Kamloops alley

A woman in her 60s was attacked from behind by two or three people and the Kamloops RCMP are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed it.

The woman was approached while walking through an alley on her way home from the grocery store, according to an RCMP media release. The alleged assault took place at 3:24 p.m. on Nov. 28 near the 1800-block of Tranquille Road.

The woman suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to the hospital.

The suspects are described as Caucasian and possibly in their 20s. They were dressed in black and wearing face masks, and one suspect may have a tattoo on their arm.

Members of the public who were in the area around that time, and noticed a group of people matching the description, are asked to call the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and mention file number 2021-41509.

Also over the the past week in Kamloops, a man refused to surrender to police after allegedly committing assault and forcible confinement.

The victim, who was a known to the suspect, escaped from an address on the 300-block of Cougar Road, according to the police report. The RCMP responded to the address on Nov. 26, 2021 at 4:35 p.m.

The suspect, still inside the residence, would not surrender. However once police obtained a warrant officers were able to arrest the man without incident.

Another police incident on Nov. 26 involved a man who was heard yelling and then discovered to be suffering from multiple stab wounds.

Officers found the man after responding to a call at around 2:45 a.m. along the 6000-block of Furrer Road. He was taken to the hospital by ambulance with non-life threatening injuries, according to the police report.

Police then went to an area near Dallas Drive to collect evidence. Investigators believe the assault was not random and there is no risk to the public.
