— 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.
