A 44-year-old Kelowna man is in stable condition in hospital after he was stabbed early Sunday morning in downtown Kelowna.
The incident occurred in the 200 block of Lawrence Avenue at about 2 a.m. during what is commonly known as bar flush.
Cst. Kris Clark says police were flagged over after the man was apparently stabbed in the abdomen following an altercation with several men.
"There is some indication the Kelowna man had some form of contact with a group of about five unidentified males," says Clark.
The victim was transported to Kelowna General Hospital suffering from serious injuries.
"As of Sunday night he remained in hospital in stable condition."
Clark says the victim is expected to make a full recovery.
He says some witnesses have come forward, however, police have yet to speak with the victim.
Clark says it's not clear as of the nature of the confrontation between the victim and the five men or what precipitated it.
"Police are requesting anyone with any information about the events surrounding the stabbing or anybody that saw the victim to call the Kelowna RCMP Detachment or Crime Stoppers.
