Vancouver man arrested on suspicion of non-consensual sexual contact

By , Columbian Small Cities Reporter

Police arrested a Vancouver man Wednesday on allegations of engaging in non-consensual sexual contact with three women over the past two years.

Christopher Lashbrook, 36, was taken into custody on three counts of indecent liberties stemming from complaints reported by three former acquaintances. In a prepared statement, the Vancouver Police Department said the three women agreed to meet Lashbrook for casual dates and at some point became incapacitated after Lashbrook served them some alcoholic drinks.

The three women were about 21 years old, and the incidents took place over the course of two years, police said. Two other women also reported similar experiences to police.

Investigators believe there may be other possible victims or witnesses. They are asking anyone with information about the situations to contact Vancouver Police Detective Barbara Knoeppel at 360-487-7436 or the Vancouver Police tip line at 360-487-7399.
