Vancouver police are searching for suspects after a group of robbers let off bear spray in a crowded Apple Store Monday night.

There were about 40 customers at the Oakridge Mall outlet location when police say three men burst in, discharged the spray and made off with a haul of electronic devices.

Five people were exposed to the bear spray and had to be treated at the scene by paramedics.

Officers arrived with a K9 unit shortly after the robbery and managed to locate some of the stolen items, but the suspects all managed to escape.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Vancouver Police Department or Crime Stoppers.
