Police are looking for the man who squirted pepper spray in the face of a woman (25) at Wednesday night January 18.
It happened when she cycled down the Akkerstraat towards Edenstraat at 1:15 am.
She heard a car approaching and noticed that the car was driven slowly beside her. The passenger window was already open when someone suddenly reached out the window and squirted pepper spray in her face.
The victim immediately felt it ended up in her throat and in her eyes. She was breathless and her eyes began to burn. In panic she called her friends who came to help her.
Eventually, the woman was taken by officers to the police station. There they helped her rinse her eyes.
