Although no one has been arrested, police believe it is likely the same man is responsible for all three incidents.

The first incident occurred on April 1 in the 600 block of East Coy Drive. A male resident arrived home shortly after 10 p.m. and observed an unknown man peeking in the window of his house. The resident yelled at the suspect who fled on foot.

While police were investigation the first incident, they received another report of an unknown male looking in a window in the 1500 block of Crestmore Place. Two female residents observed an unknown man peeking in their window. The suspect fled when the women yelled for their other roommate to come into the room.

The third incident occurred on April 2 at approximately 1:37 a.m. in the 1100 block of City Park Avenue.

The suspect descriptions in all three incidents are similar which lead police to believe the same suspect may be responsible for all three incidents.

The suspect(s) have been described as thin, college-aged white male(s), approximately 6’ tall, approximately 140 to 160 pounds, with brown eyes, A composite drawing is attached.

Window peeping is a class 1 misdemeanor offense carrying a penalty of 6 to18 months and/or $500 to $5,000 fine.
