A second man was arrested Tuesday in connection with an incident earlier this month where police say he and another suspect took intimate photographs of a woman without her permission and shared them on social media.
Brandon Gene McDonald, 24, of Bellingham, was booked into Whatcom County Jail on suspicion of indecent liberties and second-degree driving with a suspended license.
Addison James Parker, 24, of Bellingham, was arrested Monday on suspicion of indecent liberties, voyeurism and felony cyberstalking in connection with the incident.
On Oct. 6 and 7, Parker and McDonald allegedly took photos of a 32-year-old Whatcom County woman’s intimate areas in the 4300 block of Tull Road and posted the pictures to social media, according to Bellingham Police.
Never miss a local story.
The woman did not know Parker or McDonald and was unaware the pictures were taken or posted, but the men were in the same apartment as the woman, authorities said. When asked how Parker and McDonald took photos of the woman without her knowledge, Bellingham Police Lt. Danette Beckley said the woman has no recollection of the incident, so Beckley could not provide an answer.
Parker and McDonald were identified through social media. McDonald was arrested outside of Yorky’s Market on Alabama Street.
Beckley said the incident was not connected to the roughly nine other recent voyeurism reports around Western Washington University, the York, Sehome and Columbia neighborhoods and the cases from early 2017.
