Kelowna RCMP is investigating after two people were stabbed late Friday night in downtown Kelowna.

On June 4, 2021 just before 11:30 p.m., Kelowna RCMP was called to the 1300 & 1400-blocks of Water Street for a report of multiple people fighting in the park space area between Stuart Park and the Cactus Club Restaurant. Front line officers flooded the area and located two victims suffering from apparent stab wounds.

The two victims, both 19-year-old men, were transported to hospital for treatment of what police believe to be non-life threatening injuries.

At this time, no arrests have been made and the investigation is being led by the Kelowna RCMP General Investigation Section, says Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, spokesman for the RCMP Southeast District. This area of Kelowna’s downtown is often quite busy into the evening and GIS investigators believe that there were likely more witnesses to this stabbing incident, who have yet to come forward. We are urging anyone with any information with respect to this incident to contact police.

Anyone or any business with video surveillance cameras in the area, or any motorists with a dash camera who may have been travelling through that portion of the downtown core is asked to review their footage from Friday night. While anyone who may have captured cell phone video of the altercation, is urged to contact police immediately.

Anyone with this information is asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP General Investigation Section at 250-762-3300.
