Video shows an unknown man looking into a teenage girl’s window in Norcross Friday, leaving her and her family angry and afraid.

“She was sitting in her bed and getting ready for school. She’s scared out of her mind right now,” the mother said.

It happened just before six in the morning Friday at their home near Beaver Ruin Road and Huddersfield Way.

The mother asked not to be identified as she shared the video of him making not one, but two trips to the window over 10 minutes.

“I can’t understand it. It’s hard to comprehend, and so many things start running through your head,” the mother said.

It wasn’t until after he left that she thought to check her videos and discovered someone had been outside her daughter’s window.


She filed a report with Norcross police, and they told Johnson they’re investigating the man as a potential Peeping Tom.

“Hopefully, they figure out who it is or scare him off,” the mother said.

In the meantime, she says she makes sure her daughter gets to the bus stop with her older brother in the morning.

The mother is also working from home to make sure no one is watching her family who shouldn’t be.

“This world that we live in, you can’t trust anyone,” the mother said.

Norcross officers are reviewing the video as well, hoping to identify him so they can question him about what he was doing in the neighborhood.

The victim’s mother said that when it happened, her teenage daughter had no idea he was right outside.

“She’s scared out of her mind right now,” she said.
