Shoplifter uses bear spray on security guards

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

Police say the shoplifter tried to steal 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.
