Man bear sprayed

Two young men are facing charges after bear spraying another man on Saturday around 3:30 a.m.

The teens, ages 18 and 19, showed up at the residence of a 38-year-old man and were apparently looking for another man. When the resident told them the man didn’t live there, he was bear sprayed. The assault occurred in the 2000 block of 16th Avenue. Police arrived shortly later and were able to track down the suspects.
