Regina teen facing weapon charge after revealing BEAR SPRAY to woman

A 15-year-old male is facing a weapons charge after he allegedly revealed bear spray to a woman who told him he could not enter a business.

The incident took place Saturday at around 6:50 p.m. on the 2100 block of 11th Avenue just as a woman was leaving a business.

Three young men attempted to go inside, but she informed them they could not enter, as the business was closing.

The complainant left and went into another business three blocks away. The three men followed her inside.

During the investigation, it was discovered the suspect was allegedly concealing a canister of bear spray in his waistband. The accused has been charged under the Youth Criminal Justice Act with unauthorized possession of a prohibited weapon.
