Olympia transient accused of luring boys in woods

OLYMPIA — A transient has been accused of luring three boys, all 8 or 9 years old, by telling them he was making a movie called “Robin Hook” and asking them to follow him to his camp in a wooded area of west Olympia.

The boys did not follow him and later told a parent about the April 10 incident.

The Olympian reports police found 30-year-old Abraham Allen on Monday at the Nisqually Jail, where he was being held on another matter.

A judge found probable cause Tuesday for a luring charge and ordered Allen held in the Thurston County Jail with bail set at $20,000.

Allen told detectives he approached the boys, but he denied asking them to follow him into the woods.
