Man accused of pepper spraying girl, 3

A 31-year-old Medical Lake man is accused of assaulting a family with pepper spray in a dispute over a tricycle.

Andrew Nelson Evans was arrested after sheriff’s deputies found a couple and their 3-year-old daughter with orange stains on their faces and arms from the spray about 5 p.m. Wednesday in the 500 block of North Brower.

The girl’s skin and her mother’s skin appeared to be blistering, and sheriff’s deputies said all three reported “severe pain.” One deputy said the girl was crying and said she “hurt real bad.”
