Police say sketch subject not voyeur

By Walker Sacon

 

Bellingham police have identified a man arrested on Nov. 7 near Laurel Park as the subject of a composite sketch they released last week.

When it was released, police believed the man in the sketch may have been connected to recent voyeurism incidents near Western, according to a police statement. Police now do not believe the man is connected to the incidents.

He was arrested on suspicion of three felonies connected to two incidents in the Laurel Park area on Oct. 31 and Nov. 3, according to the statement.

The sketch was released after an Oct. 31 incident where Owen Allen, 21, punched and kicked a 20-year-old student in the 800 block of N. Garden Street before fleeing. Police determined the sketch’s subject matched physical descriptions from witnesses in voyeurism incidents, according to a police statement.

A police statement released Thursday, Nov. 16, said Allen was arrested after detectives noticed his resemblance to the composite sketch and that his clothing matched witness descriptions from the two incidents.
