Johnston Authorities Look For Alleged Peeper

Posted Updated

JOHNSTON COUNTY, N.C. — A Peeping Tom is on the loose in Johnston County. Authorities believe they know who he is, but they cannot find him.

Authorities said three women reported seeing a man in the bathroom at Johnston County Community College. Officials believe the man may have used a camera phone to take pictures of the women. The man fled from campus before security guards could find him.

Later that same day, a female employee at a Johnston County Wal-Mart reported a similar incident that took place in the restroom. However, the woman was able to identify the man as one of her co-workers -- 31-year-old Cornelius Higdon.

Authorities believe Higdon was the same person seen on the Johnston County Community College campus. Administrators have sent an e-mail to faculty and students, alerting them to the incident.

Investigators have not been able to locate Higden. If you have any information about Higdon's whereabouts, you are asked to contact police.
