A male youth was stabbed at Pioneer Park this past Friday night (April 8) and Mounties are now looking for eyewitnesses.
Kamloops RCMP Const. Crystal Evelyn said a group of youths came running up from the beach to police officers in the parking lot of the park to report the stabbing at 9:05 p.m.
“Officers attended an area and located numerous intoxicated youths, and a male with injuries consistent to be being struck by a sharp object,” Const. Crystal Evelyn said.
Evelyn said a male was taken to the hospital, treated for non-life threatening injuries and released.
She said that according to the police report, another male youth wearing a ski mask and blue shirt, as well as a white female youth with brown hair, who was dressed in a ghillie suit, were throwing eggs at the crowd gathered at the beach. A ghillie suit is full camoflauge suit worn by snipers and hunters.
The male youth who was stabbed allegedly confronted the pair and was attacked with a weapon.
The male and female suspects are said to have then then fled westbound, which is in the direction of Riverside Park.
The youths involved are all believed to be in and around the age of teenagers, Evelyn said.
Anyone who witnessed or has information about this investigation is asked to contact the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2022-11424.
