A man with a canister of pepper spray allegedly entered a store last night in the 7200 block of S. Tacoma Way and demanded money, according to Tacoma police.

The man put the money given to him in a backpack and fled on foot, police said.

Police brought in a K-9 unit to track the suspect, but were not able to locate him.

The incident is similar to another recent robbery, Tacoma police said, but it is not known if the incidents are related.
