Police are searching for a man who they say was caught on surveillance video peeping through a woman’s bathroom window in Manayunk.
The unidentified man walked on the porch of Jeana Fidyk's home on Green Lane Sunday at 11:44 p.m. Surveillance video shows the man looking around and licking his fingers. The man then appears to shove his hands down his pants as he looks through the bathroom window and stares at Fidyk who was getting ready for bed.
Fidyk was alerted of the man through her surveillance system and opened the door to confront him. The man then fled on foot.
"I'm really disgusted," Fidyk said. "Very upset and frightened that this could happen."
Both Fidyk and her fiancé Joe D'Alonzo believe it wasn't the first time the man has targeted their home because he knew exactly which window to go to without hesitation.
"As soon as this happened, we put these privacy protectors on," D'Alonzo said. "So now you can't see through the window at all."
They both fear the man could become more aggressive and escalate his actions at someone else's house.
"Obviously it's a really sick, really perverted person," Fidyk said. "And I want to make sure that people know we are not going to be afraid and scared out of our house."
The couple showed the video to all of their neighbors in the area so that they'd know who to watch out for.
The suspect is described as a thin man with dark hair and full beard wearing a gray-colored sweatshirt and two-tone colored sneakers.
If you have any information on his identity, please call Philadelphia Police.
