Emergency Health Services and West Kelowna RCMP were called to assist the victims of an attempted robbery with bear spray just after 9:00 PM on Friday, July 13, 2012. A couple were alone on a small beach at the south end of Gellatly Road and were approached by two teenage males who demanded their money, wallets, cell phones and back pack. When the victims refused and tried to run for their car a tanned white man wearing a purple shirt and shorts bear sprayed the male victim. The second male suspect, wearing a black jacket and blue jeans, had a knife in his hand. The suspects fled north on Gellatly Road, empty-handed.
