Silver Lake woman warns of Peeping Tom

SILVER LAKE — A woman who was taking a shower on Sunday morning looked outside her bathroom window and discovered a man was looking at her as she bathed. The woman, who did not want her name disclosed,  jumped out of the shower and called police but the man walked away, she said. Now the woman, who lives in a first-floor apartment near Sunset Boulevard and Descanso Drive, wants to alert the neighbors about the Peeping Tom.

I was showering on my first floor apartment when I looked over to see a man’s face mere inches away from mine. I called the police immediately and filed a report but I would love to get the word out to residents through your site to be sure residents on the lookout and take caution! For a female living alone it was quite the frightening experience. I was able to get a good look at him – about 5’8”, Hispanic male, 30-40 years old, bald shaved head. At the time he was wearing a baggy black Dickie-type pants with a white sleeved t-shirt tucked in.

  1. ok we have had some of the same issues this maybe a young man who is schizophrenic while he does not live in the area his grandmother does. Our Senior lead is familiar with him but I will call him today.

  2. I am shocked and outraged also. Somebody looking into a bathroom window…on the first floor…on Sunset Blvd. How about some curtains or blinds? Just saying.

    • OK, Max, since you apparently like playing the part of blame-the-victim/internet troll, and you already obviously know everything about this, you probably don’t care to hear my two cents, but I’ll give them anyway. This person is my friend and I’ve been to her apartment, and 1) you have to break into her complex to get all the way to the back of the building where her unit is, either by breaking into the front door, or by climbing one of the two six-foot fences on either side, 2) in order to get to where the window of her bathroom is, you basically have to crawl through nooks and crannies, and in between the wall and a fence that is heavily shrouded in shrubs and 3) her window is pretty small and at head-height, so unless you’re right up against it (which this guy was), you’re not going to see much.

      • And also, she’s not right on Sunset. A couple of blocks off, but they just used that as a general descriptor of where she lives.

    • just so you know…i’ve been to her apartment and 1) you have to break into her complex to get all the way to the back of the building where her unit is, either by breaking into the front door, or by climbing one of the two six-foot fences on either side, 2) in order to get to where the window of her bathroom is, you basically have to crawl through nooks and crannies, and in between the wall and a fence that is heavily shrouded in shrubs and 3) her window is pretty small and at head-height, so unless you’re right up against it (which this guy was), you’re not going to see much.

    • Max,

      Nowhere in the story did it say the apartment is ON Sunset. Here is the direct quote “lives in a first-floor apartment near Sunset Boulevard and Descanso Drive, wants to alert the neighbors about the Peeping Tom.” Did you see the NEAR Sunset Boulevard and Descanso Drive? Do you understand the difference between NEAR and on? Do I need to type slower for you Max, so you can understand?

      • David

        Yes, please type even slower for me, so I can understand what difference it makes, if her window is directly on sunset, or near there, or anywhere else for that matter. If I don’t want anyone looking in to my window, then I will close the blind.

  3. “5’8″ Hispanic male” would be a peeping ‘Tomas’ no?

  4. One more time people. Use your common sense and street smarts. Close the damn window, get a curtain, whatever it takes. This is a metropolis, not Mayberry, mmk? Don’t be a fool.

    • epgirl, don’t be a dick.

    • How about be a decent person and don’t look in the windows of people’s bathrooms? That’s a pretty easy rule for most people to follow. Opening your bathroom window to let steam escape and prevent mildew is actually a good idea.

      The victim did nothing wrong here. Jeez.

  5. “about 5’8”, Hispanic male, 30-40 years old, bald shaved head. At the time he was wearing a baggy black Dickie-type pants with a white sleeved t-shirt tucked in.”

    This description should narrow it down to about 400 or 500 neighbors within a 3 block radius. Pretty open and shut, if you ask me.

  6. Why wasn’t she wearing a bathing suit? Why didn’t she invite him in for a drink? What is she, some kind of stuck up b%tch? No wonder she was almost raped. God forbid!
