A 23-year-old Juneau man was arrested over the weekend for allegedly pointing a bow and arrow at a couple in the Willoughby District.
Wesley Bowman is charged with two counts of felony assault. Police say he approached a man and woman Saturday afternoon near Willoughby Avenue and Whittier Street, made a racist comment then walked about 10 feet away and pointed a bow and arrow at the couple. No one was injured.
Officers found Bowman in a parking lot near Willoughby and Village Street with a compound bow and several arrows. He was arrested and lodged at Lemon Creek Correctional Center.
Police say alcohol was a factor in the incident.
