OROVILLE (CBS13) — 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.

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.
