Police are looking for witnesses after a shocking unprovoked attack on an elderly woman Wednesday afternoon.

The woman was headed north on Spall Road near Harvey Avenue on her scooter, trying to pass a man on the sidewalk, when he struck her in the face, said RCMP Const. Kris Clark.

"The woman was nearly knocked to the ground, and into traffic," said Clark.

"Several passers by stopped to offer the woman assistance but the suspect continued on his way without a second look. The man was last seen headed northbound on Spall Road before turning westbound on Harvey Avenue."
He's described as Caucasian man, in his 20s, about 5-foot10 and 200-220 pounds. He was clean shaven with short dark brown hair and was last seen wearing a long sleeve grey t-shirt with blue jeans and over-the-ear headphones.
Anyone with any information should call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at to report.
