Burnaby RCMP are seeking suspects in an attempted kidnapping Thursday evening in the Capitol Hill neighbourhood.

A woman was walking south on Warwick Avenue from Pandora Street when two males suspects tried to pull her into a van, said Burnaby RCMP Corp. Dave Reid.

The woman was able to pepper spray the suspects and run into a nearby business, where she called police.

"It appears she was targeted," Reid said. "They seemed to know who she was."

However, "she does not know them."

Burnaby RCMP continue to investigate.
