City Market closed after pepper spray discharge

Staff Report

City Market in Glenwood Springs was closed for at least an hour Saturday night after someone discharged a can of pepper spray.

“It appears that somebody intentionally or inadvertently blasted some pepper spray by the checkout area,” said Police Chief Terry Wilson.

Police were called after customers and staff noticed the strong scent. An inquiry and examination of surveillance footage turned up no indication of the spray’s source.

Although one woman was briefly hospitalized for trouble breathing, no permanent injuries were reported.
