Drive-by macing

Police are turning to the public to help identify a vehicle and its occupants after several teens were bear sprayed on their way back to school Friday afternoon.

The incident occurred shortly before 12:30 p.m. as a group of teens were walking in the 700 block of Richards Road in Rutland.

“Witnesses advise that the attack was unprovoked as the youth were on their way back to school during their lunch break,” said Const. Lesley Smith.

“The youth were walking along Richards Road when a Black Dodge Durango pulled along side of them.  The truck reportedly stopped as the rear passenger rolled his window down and assaulted the group by spraying a canister of bear mace at them.”

The teens were treated by school staff members.

Police say they are looking for three South Asian men associated with a black Dodge Durango truck.

Anyone with information concerning the truck or its occupants are asked to contact Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
