Police still need help with the case of an assault on a woman in Brocklehurst on Friday night.
The 25-year-old woman was treated at RIH for stab wounds following the attack, which occurred around 9 p.m. on a path between Southill Street and the rear parking lot of the Brock Shopping Centre near Coopers.
While walking with her infant son, the woman noticed a man following her. She yelled at him and told him to go away, but the man attempted to steal her purse. During the struggle, he stabbed her twice in the arm.
Her injuries were not life threatening and she was later released.
The suspect is described as wearing all black with a mask covering his face. The victim described him as having light skin, a stocky build and taller than five foot four inches.
Anyone who may have seen something suspicious in the area or who knows anything about the incident is asked to call the Kamloops RCMP.
Police also recommend that residents be cautious when walking in the area at night. They should walk in groups, carry a cellphone to call for assistance if needed and keep to well-lit areas.
