If you live in northern Columbia Heights, be on the lookout! Just saw this on the Spring-Perry listserve
Please be on the lookout for a suspicious male whom I caught last night peeping into the back window of a house located on Spring Pl. I called 9-1-1 and the police detained the "peeping Tom" - but released him after about 20 minutes of questioning.Yikes. If you notice anything suspicious, or suspected drug dealing or prostitution, it's good to call the police even if you think they won't be able to get there. More reports in an area mean the police will look at an area more.
The person in question appeared to be a Latino male about 5'8" or 5'9" and had medium, but not quite stocky build. He had short dark hair and was wearing jeans and a bright orange or red long-sleeved t-shirt with white bird-like figure on the back. He was also riding a gray female bike with blue lettering.
I witnessed this incident around 10:45 pm and it lasted for at least 30 minutes before the police arrived.
Please be safe and alert.
