Police are investigating after a woman reportedly used a self-defense spray Friday night in an altercation with an unknown man outside the Target store in Grand Forks, according to a news release.

The woman reported to police Sunday that she was approached by a man she did not know at about 10:45 p.m. Friday. The man had arrived in a smaller, dark-colored, two-door passenger car. Police are unsure if the man was the driver or passenger in the vehicle, or if there was a second person inside the car at the time.

The woman reported she used the spray to defend herself before fleeing the area. She described the man to police as a white or Hispanic male between ages 20 and 30 with medium length brown hair. She also said he had a possible Hispanic accent, stubbly facial hair and an unkempt appearance.

The man's intent currently is unknown, as is whether there is a threat to the public. Anyone who witnessed the incident is encouraged to contact Grand Forks Police at (701) 787-8000 or by texting the word "GFPD" and their information to 847411.
