On April 30, 2022 just after 00:15 a.m., Kelowna responded to a report of a robbery with a weapon at a convenience store in the 2000 block of Springfield Road. A male suspect entered the business and assaulted an employee and customer inside the store, by deploying what is believed to be bear spray.
