The Kelowna RCMP is investigating a double-stabbing that occurred this morning in the downtown core.
Just before 3:00 a.m., Kelowna RCMP officers were conducting patrols downtown when they observed a fight in progress in the alley south of the Fire Hall on Water Street. Officers immediately intervened and learned that two men had sustained injuries consistent with stab wounds. A 26-year-old man and 28-year-old man each sustained serious non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to hospital by EHS.
The suspect, a 33-year-old man, was arrested on scene for aggravated assault and assault with a weapon. He is currently being held in police custody as the investigation unfolds.
The investigation is on-going and is being led by the Kelowna RCMP General Investigative Services, Assault-Robbery Unit (GIS).
It is unknown at this time, what led up to this act of violence, said Cpl. Tammy Lobb, Media Relations Officer for Kelowna RCMP.
