— Police said Monday that multiple peeping incidents were reported in the Cross Creek district of Fayetteville over the weekend.

From 12:24 a.m. to 10:55 p.m. Saturday, three incidents were reported to police involving a black or Hispanic man looking into windows or knocking on a door. The man was spotted in a yard at homes on Spindletree Drive, Winnabow Drive and Buffaloberry Place.

In all three cases, the suspect fled on foot.

In one case, the suspect was described as being about 5-foot-6 and appeared to be naked.

Multiple peeping incidents were reported in the same area in June.

A sexual assault and peeping incident were reported on Bear Creek Circle on June 21. In both reports, the victim said a man knocked on her window or door, and when she opened her door, he tried to pull her outside.

Police are holding a Community Crime Meeting for the area at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Calvary Bible Church, 1769 Bingham Drive.

    This person needs to be caught NOW before he harms or murder someone like the case in Raleigh. A girl was murdered in her own apartment and eventually they got him through DNA, but later on he committed suicide. Ready the book EVIL NEXT DOOR.

    What idiots, women stop opening ur door if u don't know who's there. If there is a man peeping in ur window CLOSE ur blinds. If u r gonna be stupid enough to open ur door in the late hours to a stranger at least have pepper spray, a tazer gun, or get ur license to own a gun. Good grief women smarten up, not saying it's ur fault but stop being ignorant to the fact that there were rapes in that same neighborhood as well as peeping toms previously.
