Summerville Police responded Nov. 2, to a report of a Peeping Tom of sorts at Colonial Village Apartments at Waters Edge. The complainant informed the officers that every time she stepped outside onto her back porch to have a cigarette, her 67-year-old neighbor, in the rear, would stand in his window and “pleasure himself” while staring at her.
On Nov. 2, when she went to her porch, he came to the window again and, she told police, she clearly saw him pull his pants down and start masturbating. She said she recorded the subject on her phone. However, because it was dark and the video quality poor, police could not see if the subject was masturbating. The complainant said she did not want to get the man in trouble or file a written complaint; she just wants it to stop.
Police spoke with the man and he denied doing anything other than looking out his window.
