File # 2017-67265
RCMP wish to seek the public’s assistance in effort to identify a robbery suspect and reunite a youth with a stolen ring with significant sentimental value.
During the early evening hours of November 7, 2017 the Kelowna RCMP received a report of a robbery which allegedly took place the evening prior (November 6th) in downtown Kelowna. RCMP have learned that the victim encountered and was subsequently followed by a group of three Native males from an area near the intersection of Richter Street and Bernard Avenue.
A short time later the victim was approached by one of the Native males and assaulted in the alley way which runs adjacent to St. Paul Street and parallel to Bernard Avenue, states Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey.
The suspect produced a knife, demanded money and fled the area with an undisclosed amount of cash, the victim’s transit bus pass and a white gold ring of sentimental value.
The suspect has been described to police as 40 to 50 years of age, rough looking with a pocked marked face, seen wearing jeans and a red wind breaker jacket.
The 17-year-old male youth sustained non-life threatening injuries related to the assault.
The stolen ring, valued by its owner at approximately $1,200 (similar to the ring as seen in the attached image), is described as a white gold men’s ring of a large skull, with red garnet eyes, wearing a fireman’s hat with the number 13.
