Peeping tom exposes himself to 87 y.o. in Warren

(WXYZ) - Police say a peeping tom exposed himself to an 87-year-old woman living at in a small condominium community in Warren near 12 Mile and Hoover.

The woman was in her kitchen around 6 a.m. on Tuesday when the flasher knocked. The woman thought it was her son visiting her until she looked outside.

The 7 Action News team obtained the 911 call from police. You can tell by her voice, that the elderly woman was distraught when she called, telling the dispatcher that he was trying to take his pants off.

She told dispatchers that the man came to the back door and was just standing there smiling and "fooling around with his front." 

This isn’t the first time the peeping tom has been lurking in the area.  Warren Police believe this is the same man who he peered in the window of a different apartment complex nearby and watched a woman take a shower last month.

A neighbor saw the man and called police. Police arrested him at that time, but he was later released. We also discovered that the man was cited in September of 2013 in this same area.
