HAMMOND, LA (WVUE) -

The Hammond Police Department needs the public's help identifying and finding two people they say pepper-sprayed two women and a young boy. 

Police said the incident happened March 10 at a Walmart in the 2700 block of West Thomas Street in Hammond.

According to police, the victims saw the suspects spit on an elderly man in a white pick-up truck. One victim told police she said something to the suspect as she walked by. Police said the suspects apparently took offense to the comment and the suspect wearing a white shirt and pink hat pulled out a can of pepper spray and sprayed her and her son with it. Another woman was sprayed when she tried to jump in to help the victims.

Police said the suspects fled in a Pontiac G6 with a temporary license plate.

If anyone can help identify the suspects, they're asked to call Hammond Police Department at (985) 277-5758 or call the Crime Stoppers of Tangipahoa hotline at 1-800-554-5245. You can remain anonymous and be eligible for a $1,000 reward.

    I usually leave a Saints game with an overall theme or feeling about what I just observed on the field. It typically jumps out at me right away and this column is written. But after Sunday I was left with kind of a blah emotion. Their effort against the Jets was kind of weird. It certainly wasn’t an overly impressive victory to celebrate, but nonetheless, a win in the NFL by double digits is nothing they have to apologize for. Dodging a bullet may be the more accurate descript...

    Juan's World: Saints ground Jets, look to Falcons rematch

    Welcome in to Juan's World and as you know, this blog that I do is strictly an opinion piece with a few facts sprinkled in here and there. So, with that in mind, I'm under the opinion that the Saints should've been 'expected' to look past the Jets to next weeks rematch with the Falcons. How could they not look ahead to Atlanta coming to the dome next Sunday. And before you go all 'One Game at a Time' on me, think for a second. You're supposed to beat the Jets, who came in 5-8 and wi...
