When confronted by employees outside the store, he fought with them and used bear spray on one of the workers. A native female then also sprayed bear spray at the employees and fled on foot.

The man left the scene in a stolen white Chevrolet Cavalier. Both suspects were arrested at a residence later and face multiple charges.

Chetwynd RCMP is asking anyone who may have witnessed this incident, or observed the male suspect park and leave the white Chevrolet Cavelier to call the detachment at 250-788-9221.
