RCMP are looking for three people believed responsible for an assault in downtown Kelowna on Canada Day.
Shortly before midnight Monday (July 1), police say they were alerted to a physical altercation in an alley behind the 1600 block of Abbott Street, across from City Park.
A group of bystanders was found giving first-aid to an unconscious man.
Cpl. Jesse O'Donaghey says the victim was a man in his 20s who had recently relocated to Kelowna from the lower mainland.
He was taken to hospital with what are said to be serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.
O'Donaghey says three suspects were seen fleeing the area, towards Okanagan Lake.
"All three men were described as non-Caucasian males, each standing approximately six feet tall, with stockier builds," he said. "One suspect, who reportedly had facial hair, was seen wearing a black hoodie and black pants. A second suspect, believed to be in his 20s, was clean shaven and wearing a grey T-shirt. The third was wearing dark coloured clothing."
Any witnesses are asked to call Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.crimestoppers.net.
