Saskatoon police say a 25-year-old man is in custody after heĀ entered a bar on Diefenbaker Drive Friday afternoon and demanded cash.

When employees resisted, police say, the man sprayed pepper spray into the air. He then fled the scene, stealing a patron’s bike on his way out.

He was located at a home in the 300 block of Haviland Crescent on Aug. 23, according to SPS, which is when he was arrested, charged, and brought into custody.
