Williams Lake RCMP are seeking at least one more suspect after an attempted robbery this morning.

Around 8:20 a.m. this morning, Dec. 21, police were called to a Scotia Bank where a man had been bear sprayed.

The victim had been using the ATM inside when the attack happened, according to an RCMP press release.

When the man arrived two men were already inside.

They demanded cash from him. In the end they used bear spray and fled the scene without any cash, according to the release.

Police believe a third person involved in the attempted robbery was outside.

Mounties have identified one suspect and are trying to remain the others.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Williams Lake detachment at 250-392-6211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
