Kelowna – A man is in custody after Kelowna RCMP responded to a report of an assault with a weapon at a residence in Kelowna.

On September 3rd, 2021 just before 12:00 p.m., Kelowna RCMP received a report of an assault with a weapon inside a residence in the 300-block of Bach Road in Kelowna and that the male suspect fled the property on foot prior to police arrival.

Kelowna RCMP frontline officers responded immediately and flooded the area. The male suspect was located with the assistance of Kelowna RCMP Police Dog Services hiding under a vehicle nearby. The male suspect was taken into custody without further incident by PSD Mysan. The man was also allegedly in breach of various orders previously imposed on him by the courts.
