    Question have

    Hello

    I don't understand why i have to put "have" in the sentence shows bellow.

    A friend of mine has been arrested.
       ↓
    He is alleged to have kicked a policeman.

    If i write 'He is alleged to kicked a policeman' , doest it make sence or not ?


    It is thought that the prisoner escaped by climbing over a wall.

    The prisoner is thought to have escaped by climbing over a wall.

    'The prisoner is thought to escaped by climbing over a wall' does it make sence?

    Re: have

    Used with past participle of other verbs to show that an action is in the indefinite past and has been completed.

    The sentences without "have" can be understood, but are not correct.
