The Kelowna RCMP is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a vehicle of interest.

Just after midnight on December 18th, 2021, three men were walking in the area Lawrence Avenue and Ellis Street when they were approached by a dark coloured SUV. A confrontation ensued and a male suspect associated to the SUV stabbed one of the three men. The victim, a 33-year-old man from Kelowna, was transported to Kelowna General Hospital by EHS with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

The investigation is on-going and is being led by the Kelowna RCMP General Investigative Support Team (GIST). Investigators have identified a vehicle of interest and believe it to be a black Ford Explorer with a single kayak roof rack on it.
