WINNIPEG - Police say a shoplifting youth is under arrest for using bear spray on officers.
The cops were responding to a call on Friday afternoon about a group of young people shoplifting at a store in the 900 block of Milt Stegall Drive.
When they arrived, two suspects fled in different directions.
While one resisted being arrested, the other pulled out a can of bear spray and used it.
The 12 and 14 years old suspects were taken into custody.
The boys are accused of stealing three boxes of Confetti Poppers and assaulting a 61 year old man in the process.
