This Week in Crime: More Peeps Than an Easter Candy Factory

peeps.jpgUsually we have to wait until warmer weather for the perverts to come out! First, we have the usual tomfoolery in one of the pedestrian tunnels on South Lakes Drive:

On Wednesday, January 27 around 12:55 a.m., a 39-year-old woman was walking in the 11100 block of South Lakes Drive when a man confronted her as she exited a pedestrian tunnel. The suspect exposed himself and then grabbed her before fleeing on foot. The victim was not injured.

The suspect was described as white, in his 20s, with brown eyes, around 6 feet tall, 200 pounds and wore dark clothing.
Don't feel like taking an ill-advised midnight stroll? The former Freetown Court peepers will bring the action to you!
Police are investigating a peeping that occurred in the 2000 block of Royal Fern Court on Saturday, January 23. A 49-year-old man inside the home observed a man peering through the blinds around 1:50 a.m.; the suspect fled when he saw the man.
And that's not all! We've heard from a Restonian operative that the perversion isn't just limited to south of the Toll Road.
When I read on your blog that a peeper had been caught at Freetown Court I assumed it was the same one harassing St. John's Wood apartment complex and I could relax. BUT today I had a note on my door from management that there have been two "possible peeping incidents" along with some safety tips. Just thought I'd pass it on....apparently the perverts like St. John's as much as Freetown court.
Amazingly, the criminal element somehow still managed to find the time to do some non-perverted wrongdoing:
ATTEMPTED BURGLARY OF AN OCCUPIED DWELLING: A man attempted to break into a home in the 2200 block of Castle Rock Square around 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 19. The suspect did not gain entry and fled on foot toward Soapstone Drive. He was described as Hispanic, in his 20s, about 6 feet tall and 180 pounds, with long, black hair. He wore a black T- shirt and blue jeans.

UNLAWFUL ENTRY/DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY: Police responded to a home in the 12000 block of Trumball Way on Saturday, January 23 and charged a man with unlawful entry and destruction of property. Around 6:12 a.m., a 41-year-old woman discovered the man sleeping on her couch.
Also, someone stole some "game cards" from a Fireside Place home. There are no words.

    Gulag: because we're frisky here too.

  2. Punxsutauny Peeps. If the peeps see someone else's shadow, they expect six more weeks of winter.

    We could make this an annual attraction for Lake Anne Plaza on the night of February 1. We invite a mascot peep to pop out of the one of the empty stores and see if he can spot sillhouettes of naked residents in the Hernon House and the Lake Anne condos.

  3. "Game Cards"? Are these your standard playing cards? Pokemon? Magic the gathering? Starwars TCG? Ugh, yugioh?

    this is important

  4. who you gonna call? ghostbusters!

  5. I hope they measured alcohol content in the last"I thought it was my house, dude." Did they look for a canoe parked outside?
