RCMP seek suspect in stabbing in downtown Penticton

Man stabbed downtown

Penticton RCMP are seeking information about a stabbing that took place in the 200 block of Main Street last week.

On Jan. 7 at 8:30 p.m., front-line officers responded to the area after reports that two men were fighting.

Upon arrival, officers located one male victim laying on the sidewalk, suffering from an apparent stab wound. Officers quickly provided first aid.

The 27-year-old male victim was transported to hospital with non-life threatening issues.

Officers have video surveillance of the two involved, and are hoping the public can help identify them.

"The motive for the assault isn’t clear, but officers do not believe this incident was random,” said Cst. James Grandy.

“We’re asking for anyone who recognizes either suspect caught on video surveillance to contact us."

Investigators are asking anyone who can help identify either suspect, or has any information about the incident, to contact the Penticton RCMP at 250-492-4300.
