A 31 year old Owen Sound man is facing numerous charges after allegedly attacking people at a party with bear spray.

A group of people were gathered at a Tenth Street apartment Friday night when an argument broke out.

That's when one man pulled out a canister of bear spray and discharged it several times at another man and woman.

The fight spilled outside of the building and a passing police officer noticed and chased the assailant.

The victims were treated and released from hospital.

Meanwhile, the building had to be decontaminated because of the spray.
