OROVILLE, Butte County (CBS) — A man was arrested after police say he shot at someone at a dog park with a compound bow and later terrorized customers and employees at a gas station.
John Wilkeson, 51, of Oroville was arrested at around 2 a.m. on Friday morning after officers spotted him at another gas station, CBS Sacramento reported.
Officers say Wilkeson shot at someone with an arrow at the dog park at Riverbend Park on Wednesday sometime after 5 p.m. That came shortly after someone reported a suspicious person around the park with a compound bow.
Later that night, officers were called out after reports of a man pointing a bow and arrow at customers and a store employee at the Tower Mart on Olive Highway. By the time officers arrived, he had fled the scene.
