A 21-year-old Kelowna woman is in RCMP custody after she allegedly attempted to rob a Kelowna business while wielding a knife on Wednesday (Sept. 9) morning.

RCMP received a report that a woman had entered a business at the 1900-block of Pandosy Street in Kelowna, produced a knife, and demanded money. The culprit threatened the staff, grabbed merchandise and fled the area on foot.

Officers subsequently flooded the area and apprehended the suspect.

“Our front line officers arrested the suspect without incident,” states RCMP Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy, “Fortunately no one was injured in this robbery.”

The RCMP has forwarded the matter to the BC Prosecution Service for charge review.
