RCMP in Kelowna are searching for a male suspect they believe stabbed another man with a knife downtown on Tuesday.
Police were called to the 1600 block of Ellis Street yesterday at about 4:35 p.m. to reports that a wounded man was being supported by Kelowna Downtown On Call.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found a man in his 40s bleeding from what appeared to be a stab wound in his leg.
They determined that the wound was inflicted on the 400 block of Leon Avenue.
He was taken to hospital by paramedics and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
The suspected attacker fled the area after the incident, heading along Leon Avenue towards Okanagan Lake.
Police described him as a First Nations man with spiked hair and a chain necklace.
“RCMP believe that the incident was an isolated and targeted event,” RCMP Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey said.
