More Peeping Tom incidents in Fayetteville

Police say they got multiple reports of a Peeping Tom this weekend in the same area where there were several incidents reported in June.

Saturday, officers took reports at homes in the Cross Creek area on Spindletree Drive, Winnabow Drive and Buffaloberry Place.

Between the hours of 12:24 a.m. and 10:55 p.m., callers reported a black or Hispanic male looking into windows or knocking on a door and being spotted in a yard.

"I don't go to sleep like I used to, I stay up later now, look out the window more than I used to," Spindletree Drive resident James Taylor said.

"You know it's almost like they are watching seeing when people is in and out, but they are going to get a big surprise," Winnabow Drive resident Lloyd Jackson said.

Authorities say in one case, the suspect was described as being approximately 5-feet-6-inches in height. In all three incidents, the suspect fled on foot.

"In one cause it appears as the perpetrator had no clothes on when he left, so it was definitely un-nerving," Fayetteville Police Spokesperson Dan Grubb said.

For now, police say they aren't sure if the latest incidents are linked to a composite sketch of a Peeping Tom suspect wanted for several previous peeping and sex assaults incidents in the area.

Police had previously scheduled a community crime meeting for Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Calvary Baptist Church on Bingham Drive, but it now has added significance and will likely attract more neighborhood residents.

Police ask citizens to call 911 to report any suspicious activity. They say they're working on several leads to try and identify the man.
