On July 23, 2016 at 6:27 am, an officer with the Kelowna RCMP attended the Kelowna General Hospital in response to a report of a suspicious set of circumstances. Police have learned that an unknown man had entered into at least 2 separate hospital rooms, each occupied by adult female patients. When confronted by the women inside the rooms, the man seemingly acted confused and left the area.

At one point in time the man was reportedly approached by hospital security guards. He provided a seemingly false name to the guards, indicated that he was not a patient and advised that he was lost.

RCMP are releasing a still image from the hospital’s video surveillance system in hopes that the public can aid investigators in identifying the man.

The person of interest is described as:

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300. Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
