Recent reports of a Hillcrest Peeping Tom have the neighborhood on alert and now it appears the invader has been caught on camera. 

Security camera footage shows a man looking through a window near 3rd and Pennsylvania Avenues according to ABC 10 News. Reports say the individual was first seen looking through a residential window on Sept. 6 at about 9:15 pm. He then disappeared only to return 20 minutes later to do the same thing, but this time he also urinated on a nearby wall.

He was chased away but returned again on Sept. 10. where video shows him jumping onto a patio in what may have been an effort to get a better view.

A nearby resident, Deborah Callahan, told 10 News, “(My neighbor) had pulled the blinds but he jumped up on the porch to kind of see through a gap in the blinds.  And that was concerning because he’s really interested in that window."

There have been several reports of a man looking through windows in Hillcrest. On Monday we reported another incident, this time on 4th Avenue. 

Callahan can't say if the two instances are related, but she is still concerned.“Whether it’s the same person or a different person, it’s been happening a lot,” she said.

According to Psychology Today, a "Peeping Tom" may suffer from something called voyeuristic disorder; a psychiatric sexual disorder where someone gets sexually aroused by "intentionally spying on unsuspecting people who are naked, getting undressed, or participating in sexual activities."
