The food court at Orchard Park Shopping Centre has reportedly been evacuated following a pepper spray incident.
According to a witness, the food court was shut down at about 3:30 p.m., Thursday after someone allegedly discharged pepper spray in the building.
This is the second time the shopping centre has been the target of such an event, a similar incident was reported on Boxing Day in the food court.
It’s unclear if anyone was injured in the incident. A witness said there was a strong noxious odour coming from the area.
Emergency crews are on scene.
