Kokanee Way is located off Dallas Drive north of the Kokanee Court Mobile Home Park.

“A struggle occurred in which she was assaulted before breaking free and driving away,” Const. Crystal Evelyn said in a press release. The woman was able to provide a description of one of two men at the scene who left in an older-model Chrysler K-Car which was black, tan or gold in colour, and had a flat back window.

The suspect was described as being in his 20s, six-feet tall, possibly Aboriginal, skinny with pock-marked skin and no facial hair. He was wearing a black baseball hat with a flat black brim, white front, two or three diagonal stripes, and a red emblem.

No description was available of the other man.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and reference file number 21-1121.

The Kamloops RCMP Detachment responded to approximately 333 calls for service between midnight on Friday (Jan. 8) and Monday (Jan. 11) at 8 a.m
