The mystery of blood found near a Vernon elementary school Wednesday morning appears to be solved.
RCMP officers from the Vernon-North Okanagan detachment spent most of Wednesday investigating a report of blood on Fulton Road in front of Ellison Elementary School and a report of a man at Vernon Jubilee Hospital with serious injuries.
“Their investigation has determined that the two reports were in fact linked together,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk Thursday.
The 32-year-old man who was taken to hospital suffered stab wounds. He underwent surgery Wednesday, remains in hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
Through their investigation, officers arrested a 32-year-old male suspect who was expected to appear in Vernon Provincial Court Thursday.
The investigation on this file continues.
