Fort Collins Police are investigating a series of incidents involving reports of a suspicious male who engages in window-peeping behavior and has committed burglaries to several residences in Fort Collins.
At this time, Fort Collins Police Investigators have identified approximately eight reports of window-peeping behaviors and approximately four burglaries, which appear to be connected to a similar suspect. The reports of window-peeping have involved female victims, and the burglary investigations have not indicated that the theft of valuable property was the primary motivation for the burglary. These incidents have occurred with varying frequency since April of this year.
These incidents have occurred in the western portion of Fort Collins and include an approximate area, from Mason Street on the east, to Taft Hill Road on the west, and from Prospect Road on the south to Mulberry Road on the north.
Fort Collins Police Investigators believe there is a high likelihood that there are additional incidents that have occurred in the community and have not yet been reported.
Police are continuing to investigate these reports and ask community members to use preventative personal safety measures by keeping exterior doors locked and using appropriate window coverings while dressing in their homes. Please be aware of suspicious circumstances in your neighborhood and report any suspicious persons or activities immediately to Fort Collins Police Services.
