Elderly man assaulted

North Okanagan RCMP are seeking the public’s help in identifying the person or persons responsible for an alleged November assault on a centenarian.

Police report that on Nov. 21, a 102-year-old Enderby man, acting as executor of a deceased friend’s estate in the 5500 block of Pumphouse Road in Enderby, was taking pictures on the property when a group of men approached the senior.

“The 102-year-old man was either thrown or knocked to the ground, and received injuries to his back,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

The victim told police that the men took off.

No suspects have been identified and police officers would like to move ahead with their investigation.

Anybody with any information is asked to call any rural detachment (Enderby, 838-6818; Armstrong, 546-3028; Falkland, 379-2311), or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

People are asked to quote police file number 24403.

The victim has since recovered from his injuries.
