A man was attacked with bear spray while showing his car to a couple of potential buyers Thursday night.

The incident occurred on Lynch's Lane in Torbay around 7:30 p.m. The two male suspects, believed to be in their early 20s, then sped off in the vehicle they were pretending to buy.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary said they are familiar with the suspects, and are trying to track them down.

They face charges of robbery with violence.
