Penticton man stabbed after argument on Friday night

A 39-year-old Penticton man suffered stab wounds to the chest and neck area on Friday night.

A 39-year-old Penticton man suffered stab wounds to the chest and neck area on Friday night.

RCMP responded to a stabbing complaint in the 200 block of Power Street at 7:22 p.m. Friday. Sgt. Rick Dellebuur said two males had been involved in a argument earlier that day.

“The one male left and returned later with another male and the argument continued,” said Dellebuur.

The stabbing victim was treated by emergency health services for stab wounds to the chest and neck area at the scene and then transported to Penticton General Hospital and later to Kelowna General Hospital where he underwent surgery.  RCMP said on Saturday that the man is in intensive care unit of Kelowna General Hospital where he is expected to recover from his injuries. He is listed as in stable but critical condition.

Dellebuur said information gathered from witnesses at the scene led to the arrest of a 31-year-old Penticton man in front of his nearby residence at 8:44 p.m. Friday. On Monday, Josh Mason appeared in Penticton provincial court to face charges of aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and breach of probation. He was denied bail and detained in custody.

RCMP said a 40-year-old Penticton man was also implicated in the assault and was arrested at the scene and released from custody to appear in Penticton court on Aug. 22. Charges of possession of a weapon are being recommended by the RCMP.

Dellebuur said the investigation is continuing and all three males are well known to police.
