Several members of a left-leaning political group meeting in Spenard say they were sickened and temporarily blinded Saturday afternoon, after police say a man filled the room with pepper spray.

Officials with the Alaska Grassroots Alliance said they had been gathered at the Anchorage Community House, a small venue attached to the Church of Love near 36th Avenue and Spenard Road, shortly after 2 p.m. About 15 members of the group were there training to participate in non-violent demonstrations, set to begin shortly after Mother’s Day, when the incident occurred.

APD spokesman MJ Thim said officers were called at 2:09 p.m. to the Church of Love, at 3502 Spenard Rd., for a report that about 10 people had been sprayed.
