FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — 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.
