Woman dragged from car in Penticton after interrupting theft: police

RCMP said a woman in Penticton was injured on Monday when she was dragged from a car for almost two blocks.

The incident occurred on Kinney Avenue after the victim tried to film two men who were trying to steal a licence plate, according to police.

“When she attempted to film them with her cellphone, one of the males grabbed her phone,” wrote Sgt. Jason Bayda in a media release.

“The woman fought to retain her phone and did not let go even after the male jumped into the passenger side of a vehicle to flee, dragging her for nearly two blocks before being pushed out.”

Bayda said the woman’s injuries were considered non-life threatening.

RCMP are now hoping that tips from the public will help them locate two suspects and a white four-door SUV.
