Mounties in Kamloops are appealing to the public to help identify two persons of interest after an assault with a weapon was reported last week.

Officers were called to a business in the 300 block of Victoria Street around 2:20 a.m. on Nov. 28 and found a man suffering "visible injuries," the Kamloops RCMP said in a news release Thursday.

Police say a suspect reportedly assaulted a worker at the business with a "sharp object" after he was asked to leave by the employee.

The victim was taken to hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

The suspect is described as a white man with a dark complexion, standing approximately 6'3" with dark hair and a bushy beard.

"Since the initial response, police have acquired security images featuring two people of interest: a man and a woman who officers would like to identify to help further the investigation," Kamloops RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Crystal Evelyn said in the release. "The pair may have left in a dark sedan."

Anyone with information about the persons of interest is asked to call the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000.
