Police are searching for a suspect they say was observed “peeping” into the window of a northern Delaware home.
New Castle County Police responded to a trespassing complaint on the 1500 block of Hickory Road, Wilmington around 10:30 pm Wednesday.
A witness at the scene told officials he observed a male suspect looking into the ground floor window of a neighbor’s home, according to reports. The witness said he exited his front door and saw the suspect fleeing on foot and hopping a fence, according to police.
Authorities said additional witnesses also observed a male suspect fitting the same description walking away from the window of the victim’s home.
Assisting units, including a K-9 officer, arrived on the scene to try and locate the suspect.
Police describe the suspect as in his early 40s, about 5-feet 10-inches tall, weighing about 200 pounds, with a large build and brown hair. He was last seen wearing a t-shirt, jean shorts, and sneakers, according to investigators.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the New Castle County Police Department at (302) 395-8110.
