UPDATE 09:35

Kelowna RCMP is investigating a man who was attacked early Wednesday morning.

Mounties received a report of an incident on the 100 block of Gray Rd. at 2:48 am. When they arrived at the scene, they found indications that a serious attack had taken place, but the victim was not found.

Officers searched the area and found a 27-year-old Kelowna man on Valleyview Rd., who suffered “serious injuries.” The injured man was taken to hospital for medical treatment.

Using security videos, officers learned that the victim was attacked by another man who then fled the scene of the accident. The suspect was later located and arrested.

“Events like these are troubling to our community, but thanks to the quick response of RCMP General Duty Officers, the suspect was arrested and is now in jail,” Const said. Mike Della-Paolera of the Kelowna RCMP.

Police are asking witnesses who have not yet spoken to police to call the Kelowna RCMP non-emergency number at (250) 762-3300 and reference file number 2022-62923.

They are also interested in any dashcam or surveillance videos from the area.


A Petro-Canada gas station in Rutland off Dougall Road was surrounded by police tape on Wednesday morning.

When Castanet arrived at the scene around 8:30 a.m., the shop reopened and a member of RCMP was seen removing the tape.

When asked what happened, police said only that there was an incident last night that forced the store to close.

There appears to be no damage to the exterior of the building, but Castanet has contacted both Petro-Canada and the Kelowna RCMP for comment.
