Penticton woman suffers knife attack

A Penticton woman was cut from a knife and her dress was torn in an attack early Sunday morning.

A 24-year-old woman walking near the Japanese Gardens around 1:15 a.m. on Sunday was attacked by an unknown male.

"The female had left a local bar and decided to go for a walk and was attacked by a male," said Sgt. Rick Dellebuur.

The man is described as Caucasian but tanned, short brown hair, with a long sleeve dark blue shirt on. The woman described him as approximately 5'9 tall and around 35 years old. The male ran away from the area after stealing the female's money.

"Police are reminding people to be cautious if they go for a late night walk alone and to be aware of their surroundings," said Dellebuur.

Penticton RCMP are continuing to investigate the matter. Anyone with information is asked to contact RCMP at 250-492-4300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
