The victim was a former girlfriend who eventually escaped. A few days later, Wilson says Charpentier was alleged to have gone into someone’s home, committed a robbery, and stole that person’s car. And then in June he was reported to have gone into someone else’s home and stole various items, including a vehicle. He was later spotted in that vehicle and taken into custody.

Competent or not,Allyn Charpentier is a very dangerous person and needs to be put away a very long time. I hope the DA takes into consideration that this individual terrorized the whole community. He already has a violent felony record and why he was out of jail is a mystery to me. On Mothers Day of this year, Charpentier brazenly walked into the Country Store with an illegal assault weapon and abducted an employee at gunpoint. He shot off numerous rounds inside the store and took a shot at another employee fleeing the scene. He then forced the abductee into her car and drove away leaving behind shock and mayhem. The store had quite a bit of damage to repair and was closed over 6 weeks. This was a major inconvenience to many who shopped there for their daily necessities. While Charpentier was on the loose for over 5 weeks, there were numerous sitings of this individual resulting in a lot of police and other resources. It also put Grizzly School into lockdown mode more than once while authorities search for Charpentier. I do hope that the Prosecuting Attorneys consider the terror caused by Charpentier and the impact he had upon this community.
