Vancouver man facing three counts of assault causing bodily harm in connection with stabbing at Red Bridge Pub

Three people were stabbed early Saturday morning at a pub in Keremeos.

Cpl. Mike Gallagher said at approximately 1 a.m. an altercation occurred at the Red Bridge Pub in Keremeos which resulted in three people being stabbed.

A 34-year-old Vancouver man has been arrested for three counts of assault causing bodily harm. RCMP said the victims received non-life-threatening injuries and have been released from the hospital. Investigation into the incident is ongoing.

On Saturday at 8:45 p.m., a Keremeos man suffered a serious assault in the Pine Park area. The man might have sustained two broken ribs in the incident that resulted in a 33-year-old Surrey man being arrested for assault.

Following Saturday’s incident, reports of a man throwing rocks down the bench from the Hilltop Esso area resulted in police charging the same male who was involved in Saturday’s incident with assaulting a police officer.

Police arriving at the scene of the complaint were bombarded with rocks thrown at their police cruiser. The man was arrested after a short pursuit.
