A man was stabbed at a local “pit party” in rural Enderby just before 4 a.m. Friday morning, according to police. The man, who suffered undisclosed injuries, was driven closer to town by friends, where he was handed over to emergency first responders.

“Vernon North Okanagan RCMP’s rural General Investigative unit has assumed conduct of the investigation, which remains in the preliminary stages,” says RCMP Const. Kelly Brett.

“Given the extent of the victims’ injuries police are seeking additional information surrounding the events leading up to the incident.”

The victim is reported to be a 43-year-old West Kelowna man, who remains in hospital for the time being but is expected to recover.
