Police Report from Oct. 17

An assault at a bar and a stolen purse were the two items from the Oct. 17 RCMP report.

Dust-up at local watering hole

A Kelowna man was swinging wildly and hit a police officer in an altercation outside a local pub.

At 11 p.m. on Oct. 12, RCMP responded to an assault at 72 Avenue and Second Street at Clyde’s Pub. An individual was arrested for assault causing bodily harm as well as assaulting a police officer.

“The police officer came to investigate the assault call and was assaulted by the accused person,” said Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison. “The accused jumped up on the police car and caused quite a scene. He had to be subdued with the use of pepper spray.”

The accused, a 25-year-old male from Kelowna, was released the following afternoon at 1:30 p.m. after a bail hearing was held, said Harrison. The bail conditions including: not to consume alcohol, not to contact the victim, not to possess weapons, and to report to a bail officer within the week.

No weapons were involved. There was a minor thumb injury sustained by the police officer.


Purse snatched

On Oct. 10 at 12 noon, RCMP received a complaint of a theft of a purse on 2nd Street.

“A person had left it sitting on a bench outside Kocomo’s,” said Harrison. “When the person returned approximately 10 minutes later, the purse was missing. The purse contained credit cards, id’s, driver’s license, as well as U.S. and Canadian cash.”

The purse was returned to the person at 12:40 p.m.

“Apparently, the purse was found in a dumpster behind Kocomo’s,” said Harrison. “Only the cash was missing from the purse when it was returned.”

Harrison urges people not to leave their purses or other valuables unattended.
