Teenager says man grabbed her as she was jogging in Kelowna

Police in Kelowna are investigating after a teenager said a man grabbed her arm while she was out jogging.

It happened at about 6:30 pm on Wednesday along McClain Road, near June Spring Road.

The woman, who is 18, said she attempted to run by a man who was standing near a vehicle.

He then grabbed her arm, she said.

She succeeded in pulling away, however, and immediately ran home.

Officers searched the area but found nobody.

The woman provided police with the following description of the man:

  • White

  • Between 40 and 50 years old

  • Medium-length curly black hair

She said the vehicle he was standing beside was a newer model black four-door SUV with a silver roof rack.

“At this time, we don’t know what the suspect’s intentions were, but we are working diligently to solve this incident,” said Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy.

“We are asking anyone who was in the area and saw something, or has dashcam or surveillance video of the incident to contact us immediately. We are also asking anyone who recognizes this suspect or vehicle description to call us.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
