Kelowna RCMP are seeking help to track down a stolen ring, similar to the one shown here, which was taken after a teenager was assaulted in a downtown Kelowna alley. Police are searching for a suspect and a stolen ring after a teenager was assaulted by a man in a downtown alley last Monday.
On Nov. 7, Kelowna RCMP received a report of a robbery that had taken place the prior evening downtown Kelowna.
The victim had encountered and was then followed by a group of three Native males near the intersection of Richter Street and Bernard Avenue, said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey.
The victim was approached by one of the males and was assaulted in the alley adjacent to St. Paul Street and parallel to Bernard Avenue.
“The suspect produced a knife, demanded money and fled the area with an undisclosed amount of cash, the victim’s transit pass and a white gold ring of sentimental value.”
The suspect is described as between 40 and 50 years old, “rough-looking” with pockmarks on his face. He was wearing jeans and a red windbreaker jacket.
The 17-year-old male victim sustained non-life threatening injuries.
The stolen ring, valued by its owner at about $1,200, is described as a white gold men’s ring with a large skull with red garnet eyes, wearing a fireman’s hat with the number 13.
Anyone with information is asked to call RCMP at 250-762-3300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 to remain anonymous.
