File # PN 2023-1440

Penticton RCMP is looking for witnesses to come forward following a report of an assault at a popular beachfront.

On January 29, 2023, Penticton RCMP received a report from a victim that they had been assaulted a month prior on New Years Eve, December 31, 2022 on the Sakha Lake Park walkway sometime between the hours of 4-5pm.

The incident began with an argument and escalated into an assault, and the victim suffered a broken bone as a result, said Cst Dayne Lyons, Penticton RCMP Media Relations Officer. Since this beachfront is so popular, we are confident someone had to have seen something.

The victim reported that an elderly couple came forward at the time saying they witnessed the incident, but they did not remain at the scene.

We hope that this couple may see this news release and come forward to police, Cst Lyons continued.

If you have information regarding this report, you are urged to call the Penticton RCMP at 250-492-4300 and quote file number 2023-1440. To remain completely anonymous you can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or leave your tip online at www.crimestoppers.net.
