49-time convicted felon arrested on multiple felony charges relating to several domestic violence incidents

On August 29, at approximately 1:00am, 911 received a phone call from a citizen regarding a potential domestic violence No-Contact Order Violation. The caller told 911 she observed the suspect just outside a residence in the 1500 block of W. Sharp Avenue.  During a separate incident, the caller was told by SPD to call 911 in the event she observed the suspect, as he was prohibited from being at the location.

As the caller remained on the line with 911, the suspect observed her looking at him and immediately appeared to flee on foot.

Prior to SPD arrival, officers confirmed there was a valid domestic violence no-contact order in place, prohibiting the suspect from being at the location where the protected party currently resides. Additionally, officers learned there was probable cause to arrest the suspect for a domestic violence No-Contact Order Violation, First Degree Burglary (DV), and Second Degree Assault (DV) stemming from a previous incident. The suspect also had an active arrest warrant for Third Degree Assault.

Once on scene, officers made their way to the residence of the protected party in an effort to ensure her safety. As they approached the door, they heard two parties arguing inside the residence.

As officers knocked on the door, the protected party/victim answered the front door and told officers the suspect was inside the residence. Officers announced their presence and advised the suspect he was under arrest.

The suspect exited the residence without incident and was taken into custody for No-Contact Order Violation (DV), Residential Burglary (DV), and the above listed charges from a previous incident.

The suspect was identified as William Ogan (39 y/o). Ogan is a 49 time convicted felon. These convictions include (3) Second Degree Taking a Motor Vehicle without Permission, (3) Third Degree Assault, (2) Riot-Deadly Weapon, Second Degree Robbery, Residential Burglary, Second Degree Theft, (3) Second Degree Possession of Stolen Property, Indecent Exposure.

The Spokane Police Department encourages anyone who is involved in a Domestic Violence incident to call 911 or visit the Spokane Regional Domestic Violence Coalition Resource Page.
