Myrtle Beach woman reports peeping

Myrtle Beach police plan to seek an arrest warrant from a judge for a 30-year-old man on a peeping Tom charge after a woman reported she caught him looking into her apartment twice early Wednesday, according to a police report.

A 24-year-old woman told officers that at 12:30 a.m. Wednesday at 1301 Pridgen Road she was with her children and talking to her boyfriend on the telephone when she saw a man looking through her bedroom window, police said.

The woman said a vehicle that pulled into the apartment complex parking lot scared him away, but later on she noticed him peering through her kitchen window, according to the report.

The victim recognized the man as her neighbor, and later that day she reported her concerns to the apartment complex manager.

The manager reviewed video surveillance and made a copy for police, according to the report.

The video showed the man looking through the woman’s bedroom window, and then he stood near the woman’s door before he returned to his apartment.

Officers went to the man’s apartment and spoke to his wife, who told police he was not there, according to the report.

Officers wrote in the report they planned to seek a warrant for the man’s arrest. It was unclear if a warrant had been obtained for the man’s arrest.

The Sun News does not identify suspects until an arrest warrant has been obtained or the person has been formally charged.
