Sgt. Steve Addison with the Vancouver Police Department told Daily Hive that the incident happened near the Nanaimo SkyTrain Station.

“A father and son were walking around 9 p.m. after the Whitecaps game when confronted by a group of teens,” he said.

The Vancouver Police Department tweeted out details of the incident on Sunday, May 15.

“There was a verbal exchange and one of the teens allegedly deployed bear spray…We believe the suspects and victims were familiar with each other.”
