“This man has come to stare into my bedroom window twice this week,” a woman who wanted to only be identified as Sydney wrote. “He is also staring into my living room and living rooms of others in our building.”

Sydney urged anyone who saw him to call 911, since he appears to be targeting young women.

She says she saw the man peering into her living room window while she as on the phone with police last Wednesday. He showed up again on Sunday.


Channel 2′s Christian Jennings was in Midtown, where neighbors put up flyers to alert the community to the Peeping Tom.

“I kinda also want him to be as creeped out as I am. If I walked around and my face was everywhere, I wouldn’t want to be around there,” Sydney told Jennings.

Sydney’s neighbor helped her plaster the fliers up and down their street after she says she’s seen the man looking into her home seven different times.

“The last time he was here, when I was talking to my neighbor on the phone, I had my face pressed against the window like looking to see if I could see him, and he was maybe a foot away like. I was shaking,” Sydney’s neighbor Sarah recalled.

Police said they are actively searching for the man near Myrtle and 7th Streets.

Jennings talked to one victim, who said she is now terrified to sleep in her own home.

“This man enjoys knowing that he’s terrorizing women,” she said. “I want him to be as creeped out as I am.”

Police have not said if they have any leads on a suspect.
