Plainfield Peeping Tom Caught On Surveillance Camera
PLAINFIELD, IN – Families in Plainfield have begun taking extra security measures after a man was caught on video watching children get dressed Monday.
A home surveillance video caught the man climbing a backyard tree in the Bentwood subdivision and peering through a window. Family members said the man was watching girls as they got dressed for school.
The video also showed the man touching himself in a sexual manner as he looked through the window.
"We have the video, he's on the camera, he's looking at the camera, we have his face. Help us. We need to I.D. this person,” said Nydia Botero, the victim’s mother.
Camera footage showed the man glancing at a cellphone multiple times. Parents are worried he may have recorded video.
Another family that lives across the street said a man broke into their home and walked into their daughters’ room, but ran away once the girls screamed for help.
Plainfield police said the investigation is ongoing, but families in the area said they hope someone will see the footage and share information with officers.
