A 16 year old boy from Brabant Lake is facing numerous charges after a robbery last night.

The incident at a business in the 900 block of La Ronge Avenue was reported around 11:15 p.m.

RCMP say a lone male wearing a balaclava entered the business, stole an undisclosed amount of merchandise and attempted to leave.

Police arrived on scene and arrested the suspect.

Investigators say two employees working in the store were sprayed with bear spray.

They were taken to hospital and later released.

The teen faces a number of charges including robbery, wearing a disguise, and assault with a weapon.

He is being held in custody and is scheduled to appear in La Ronge court on Monday.
