An altercation involving a man and a woman that started elsewhere, eventually moved into the FVRD parking lot on Feb. 16 at about 4 p.m. An individual tried to intervene, and the situation spilled into the parking lot where pepper spray was deployed, according to RCMP Sgt. Martin Godard.

Two individuals were treated by emergency health services personnel.

There were no arrests, police said.
