Police are looking for witnesses to an assault after a man was apparently kicked in the face while on the ground in the early morning hours on Sunday.
Shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday Kelowna RCMP received a report of an assault that had just occurred on Pandosy Street at Lawrence Avenue.
Two 19-year-old Kelowna men were on Lawrence Avenue when they engaged a group of about five other men in conversation.
The men apparently didn't want to talk to the two, responding instead with anger.
As a result, one of the 19-year-old men was pushed and punched, falling to the ground where he was then kicked in the face. He suffered non-life threatening injuries. The other man was able to defend himself and came away unharmed.
The five suspects are all described to be East Indian men, one of whom was wearing a light blue sweater.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP, Cst Joyce at 250-762-3300.
Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
