Emergency vehicles near the Queensway traffic circle Thursday night.
There was a large police presence in Kelowna’s downtown core Thursday night.
While it’s not clear exactly what occurred, at least eight RCMP cruisers and an ambulance were near the Queensway traffic circle and in the nearby parking lot before 10 pm, with their lights flashing. Most of the emergency vehicles were leaving the scene by about 10:15 pm
Castanet has heard unconfirmed reports that the incident may have involved stabbing, but the RCMP has not yet commented on the matter.
The condition of those involved is not known at this time, and it’s not clear if any arrests have been made.
Castanet will have further details on the incident Friday.
The incident comes after a man was seriously injured in downtown Kelowna early Tuesday morning when he was slashed in the face with a box cutter near the Stuart Park washrooms.
