RCMP are trying to identify two men who may have witnessed a wellness check involving UBC Okanagan student Mona Wang and an RCMP officer.

Two men were captured on video in the lobby of a Kelowna residential building at 883 Academy Way, On Jan. 20 at approx. 5:45 p.m. This is believed to be connected to the wellness check of Mona Wang where she claims she was assaulted by an RCMP officer.
