RCMP are investigating an incident where an unconscious woman was left in a parking lot in Vernon Sunday night by an unknown driver of a large grey or silver SUV.
Around 10 p.m., Sunday, July 9th RCMP responded to a "suspicious occurrence" they say happened in the parking lot of the Aloha Laundry in the 2800 block of 34th St, Vernon.
Police say a man driving a full-size grey or silver SUV pulled into the parking lot and proceeded to pull an unconscious woman from the vehicle, driving away and leaving her unattended.
