BELLINGHAM — A felony assault suspect remains at large Tuesday, Feb. 19, a day after injuring a Bellingham woman by punching her in the face repeatedly.
Officers believe at 1:35 a.m. Monday, the man was visiting a 52-year-old woman in the 1700 block of Texas Street when they got into an argument.
She took several blows to the face before the man fled the scene, said Bellingham police spokesman Mark Young. She needed immediate medical treatment.
Police have probable cause to arrest the man for domestic violence assault in the second degree — a charge often reserved for assaults that cause serious injuries. Young said the detective hasn’t asked for public assistance in tracking down the suspect, so his name hasn’t been released.
