Crook utilizes bear spray

SURREY – Surrey Mounties are hunting for a robber who bear-sprayed two people and carjacked a woman in Guildford on Wednesday.

Shortly after 7 p.m. the robber – an Asian man in his 30s wearing a black hoodie – confronted another man who had just arrived home, near 108th Avenue and 150th Street, and demanded his keys. The victim refused, and the robber bear-sprayed him. A few minutes later, he robbed a woman of her car after bear-spraying her.

“We assume it’s the same male,” Cpl. Bert Paquet said. Paquet said the RCMP’s Air 1 helicopter has been looking for the car, a four-door 2007 blue Hyundai Accent, licence plate number 705 SMR. The robber is about five feet eight inches tall, medium build.
