Police: 'Peeping Tom' spotted prowling campus-area homes

EUGENE, Ore. - Reports of a "Peeping Tom" in a neighborhood south of the University of Oregon prompted campus police to issue a campus crime alert Monday.

Eugene Police took at least two reports this week of a 6-foot-2, slim white man in a black hooded sweatshirt and dark paints looking into windows of homes in the Onyx Street and 21st Avenue area.

"For both personal privacy and for property theft prevention, it is always advisable to keep blinds or curtains closed, and to keep windows and doors locked," the UO Police Department said.

Anyone with information about this or similar incidents is asked to call Eugene Police at 541-682-5111 or UOPD at 541-346-2919.
