OKLAHOMA CITY – A heroic neighbor saved the day after an alleged Peeping Tom targeted a south Oklahoma City apartment complex.
It happened over the weekend near I-240 and South Sante Fe.
“Police were called by a woman who saw a man peeking through windows into another apartment,” said MSgt. Gary Knight with the Oklahoma City Police Department.
Luckily, the suspect, Eduardo Solis-Lopez, didn’t get too far before police got to the scene.
“When officers arrived, they found the man. He was actually running to his truck. They recognized him from the description on the call,” Knight said.
After detaining him, officers talked with the two victims.
One of them was in the shower when Solis peeked through her window.
“The man was apparently peeking in both apartments, seeing both people. Obviously, at that point, he’s under arrest for being a Peeping Tom,” Knight said.
The victims have a good Samaritan to think for the quick response.
“Thankfully, it was the neighbor who saw this going on, because neither of the victims realized this guy was peeping through a window. So, it was the neighbor who saw this activity. She did the right thing. She called police,” Knight said.
