Anacortes Police Seek Information On Alleged Assault

Assault Injuries

Anacortes Assault Update:  On February 26th, 2016, SkagitBreaking.com received an update from  Anacortes Police Chief Bonnie Bowers via a Nixle Notification on the alleged assault we reported about within the City of Anacortes earlier in the week.  See the notification below:

  “On the morning of February 21st, the (Anacortes) Police Department became aware of a post on a local social media site that warned citizens of a potential threat in the area of 10th Street and “M” Ave. The second hand report alleged a woman was attacked by a stranger on the evening of February 19th. No report had been made to the police department at the time the post appeared.

Officers contacted the person who made the post, identified the alleged victim and reached out to her. After a thorough investigation, the police department has determined the original social media post gave inaccurate information. Citizens are urged to call the police if they are victims of or become aware of any suspected criminal activity.
