Indecent exposures reported at Lake Padden

The Bellingham Herald

Two people reported an indecent exposure about noon Saturday at Lake Padden Park, police said.

Bellingham Police Lt. Danette Beckley said one incident was reported near the tennis courts on the northwest side of the lake and the other was reported nearby at the bathrooms and showers. Both locations are in the same general area of the park.

“Description is white male, short, stocky, in his 50s or 60s with a beard, blondish hair – wearing a Carhart-type jacket,” Beckley said.

She said one caller said the man was masturbating and the other caller said the man was exposing himself.

Description of the man doesn’t match that of the voyeur and flasher who police linked to more than two dozen incidents in summer and fall of 2017, she said.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call a non-emergency number at police dispatch, 360-676-6911.
