May 15, 2017 - 3:17 PM

KELOWNA - A woman is facing multiple charges after allegedly stabbing a woman and then turning herself in to police.

Two women were walking near the intersection of Bernard Avenue and St. Paul Street just after 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 13 when they were approached by a female stranger, according to an RCMP media release.

“After a brief verbal interaction with that woman, the two young women walked away,” Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey says in the release. “Within seconds the victim screamed out in pain and immediately realized she had been stabbed in the back by the unknown woman, who fled the area on foot.”

The woman who was stabbed was taken to hospital immediately with serious but non life-threatening injuries.

RCMP searched for the suspect and collected surveillance footage of the assault.

Roughly an hour later, at 4 p.m., the suspect arrived at the Kelowna RCMP station and turned herself in to police.

Courtney Mae Marciszyn, 21, of Kelowna appeared in court earlier today, May 15, and has been charged with assault with a weapon, possession of a weapon for dangerous purposes and assault causing bodily harm.
