Prowler reported shining flashlights into victims’ windows
–At approximately 4 a.m. Thursday morning, officers responded to the 400 block of Kentucky in San Luis Obispo for the report of a prowler. The female victim told officers she woke to sounds outside her bedroom window. When she looked out she saw an unknown male suspect was holding a cell phone and watching a pornographic video while shining a light into her bedroom. When the victim called 911 the male suspect fled on foot in an unknown direction.
The same victim told officers this was the second time this occurred at the same location with the same activity taking place. The earlier incident took place on Feb. 5 at approximately 10:15 p.m. This incident was not reported to the police department until this morning.
These two incidents are similar to another prowling incident that occurred on Jan. 22 at approximately 3:45 a.m. in the 1300 block of Foothill. In that incident, the female victim reported similar circumstances.
In all three cases, the suspect pointed a flashlight into the window. The victims were only able to see the suspects profile and could not provide additional descriptions. Investigators believe all three incidents are related and we are actively looking for leads in these cases.
If you have any information about these crimes or other similar cases you are encouraged to call the San Luis Obispo Police Department at (805) 781-7312 or Crime Stoppers at (805) 549-STOP.
