The Kelowna RCMP is wondering if you know this man

The Kelowna RCMP is looking to identify the victim of a serious assault in order to advance their investigation.

According to police, the assault took place on Lawrence Avenue near Water Street at about 3:30 a.m. on Saturday April 1.

“Investigators were able to view CCTV footage which depicted the victim and are now seeking to identify the victim who has yet to come forward,” said Cpl. Dan Moskaluk.

“The victim may have been near that same intersection, interacting with people and vehicles for some time prior to being assaulted.”

The victim is described as an adult male, with dark hair, wearing dark pants, a light colour long sleeve shirt and carrying a dark jacket over his shoulder. He was last seen walking north bound on Water Street. Investigators would like to speak to the victim.

“The evidence suggests that this person may have suffered injuries to the face and upper body,” adds Moskaluk.

“RCMP investigators have released an image of the victim in hopes of identifying the man.”

The Kelowna RCMP is asking anyone who may have witnessed the assault or who may have information regarding the identity of either the victim or the suspect to contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300, or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
