West Kelowna RCMP were dispatched to a disturbing occurrence on February 28th at 2:40 AM. Suspects had gained entry to a two story building on the 2500 block of Main Street by climbing to the roof and entering through a window. Once inside the two suspects pried open a residential apartment door, awakening one of the residents who was threatened and ordered to lie on the floor. One of the two male culprits attempted to break into a locked drawer with a crowbar but was interrupted by a second resident, who was also threatened with a gun. At this time the suspects fled. The next day it was noted that a business on the main floor had also been broken into.
