KELOWNA - A group of teens were sprayed with bear mace last week and Kelowna police are looking for three suspects in connection to the attack.

Eye witnesses stated the youths were heading back to school during their lunch break when a black Dodge Durango pulled up next to them. The rear passenger rolled down his window and sprayed a cannister of bear mace on the group. Witnesses said the attack was unprovoked.
