The Bellingham Police Department is investigating recent incidents of voyeurism reported in the 700 to 1100 blocks of North Garden Street, the 1300 block of Franklin Street and the 1000 block of Jersey Street. Most incidents occurred in the early morning hours as people were waking to go to work or school. One incident was reported around 11 p.m.
The voyeur is described as a white male wearing a dark or black hooded sweatshirt. The male reportedly holds up a flashlight, which could be the flashlight on a phone.
