A man was arrested for allegedly peeping through the window of a woman’s Bath Street residence.
Santa Barbara police went at 4:24 a.m. on Thursday, November 19 to the 1600 block of Bath Street after a caller reported a prowler in the next-door neighbor’s backyard, according to SBPD Lt. Paul McCaffrey. Three officers coordinated an approach, he said, and found a man standing on a garbage can peering into the window, his pants unzipped. The man’s station on the garbage can allowed him to see into the lighted room through a crack in the blinds. McCaffrey said the woman who lived there was a stranger to the prowler.
The officers arrested the 30-year-old Oxnard man, who has a Goleta construction job, and booked him on a “Peeping Tom” charge.
