Police warn of peeping man on Short Street

Police have asked people to be on the lookout for a Peeping Tom who has allegedly been peering into houses in the 500 and 600 blocks of West Short Street in Lexington.

Several people have called police to report that they have seen a man who appeared to be peering into windows at night since an initial report was filed with police last week.

Police received the latest report Wednesday night. A caller told police a man was in an alley between houses looking into windows, police spokesman Sherelle Roberts said. She said police would be "keeping an eye" on the area.

Police don't have much of a description,, Roberts said. One witness reported to police that the man rode a bike and wore a skull cap.

Residents who see suspicious activity in that area should call police immediately, Roberts said.
