Guildford shoplifter bearsprays guards, tries jacking two cars

SURREY — A shoplifter blasted a couple security guards with bear spray and then tried to carjack two motorists in Guildford on Monday afternoon.

Police say the shoplifter stole an electric shaver from Wal-Mart and then sprayed two loss prevention officers as they went after him. It happened at about 3:30 p.m.

He ran across the parking lot where he tried to grab a car, failed, and then tried another. The second motorist kicked him, and helped the store’s officers chase him down and hold him until police arrived.

A 24-year-old Surrey man is facing charges.
