Man stabbed in Kelowna

Police are investigating after a 19-year-old Surrey man was sent to hospital with apparent stab wounds early Sunday morning.

On May 18, 2014 at 1:43 am, the Kelowna RCMP responded to a report of a stabbing victim at Kelowna General Hospital.

Earlier that night, two groups of Indo-Canadian men were apparently involved in an altercation on the 200 block of Leon Avenue. 

During the altercation, a 19-year-old Surrey man suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries as a result of being stabbed.

He was subsequently taken to hospital by his friends.

No other significant injuries were reported.

Both groups appear to be known to each other and are believed to be from Surrey.

The investigation is ongoing.

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