A Kelowna man was beaten and bleeding when Mounties found him early Wednesday morning.

It was around 2:48 a.m. when Kelowna RCMP said they received a report that a man had been assaulted near the 100 block of Gray Road.

Bleeding heavily, the 27-year-old Kelowna man was eventually tracked down on Valleyview Road, and was taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries, RCMP said.

During the initial investigation, officers reviewed video surveillance of the attack on the victim by another man who then left the scene. The suspect was later located and arrested.

This file is being investigated by the Kelowna RCMP Robbery Unit with the support of the Kelowna RCMP Forensics Unit.
