Unsuccessful carjackers pepper-spray women in car

SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle police say two men walked up to a car stopped at a red light in south Seattle and pepper-sprayed the two women inside in an unsuccessful effort to steal the car.

KOMO-TV reports ( http://is.gd/FP0yLX) the driver hit the gas Tuesday evening and raced through the red light without hitting any other cars.

Police say the men ran off. The women pulled into a nearby convenience store to call police. Medics treated them for exposure to the spray.
