FISHERS, Ind. - Fishers police are searching for a man who was caught looking inside an apartment window at a young girl late Tuesday night.
The alleged peeping Tom was spotted at the Wellington Place Apartments near 106th Street and Lantern Road.
An officer with the Fishers Police Department arrived to see the suspect standing behind the apartment but he ran once he saw the officer’s car.
The suspect was described as a white male who was wearing jeans, a blue hooded-sweatshirt and a white shirt with writing on it.
"When the subject saw the police car approaching he ran from the officer, we set up a perimeter and used a couple police K-9s to search the area but we were unable to come up with the subject," Sgt. Tom Weger said.
Police said to close your blinds at night and make sure your outdoor lights are on to avoid becoming a victim.
Area residents said they hadn’t seen the peeping Tom, but they were still taking precautions.
"Our whole neighborhood takes those precautions and we're always locking our doors and making sure the outside lights are on," resident Donna Perrone said.
The police department is asking anyone who may have been in the area Tuesday night or possibly observed the suspect to call the Fishers Police Department.
