Anchorage police have identified the suspect believed to have bear-sprayed a Spenard gathering last weekend as a man shot and wounded by APD more than a decade ago, saying he remains at large and may be armed and dangerous.

Bret Maness, 53, is the suspect in Saturday’s incident near the Church of Love at 3502 Spenard Rd., police spokesman MJ Thim announced Thursday.

Members of the Alaska Grassroots Alliance said on Facebook Saturday afternoon that they had been conducting non-violent demonstration training when a man walked into the room, dispensing an orange cloud which left members of the group temporarily blinded and coughing.
