— Raleigh police investigators think a home burglary in the 2300 block of Brimwater Drive last month might be linked to a report of a peeping Tom in that same area.

Police said a woman reported seeing a man in her back yard apparently looking into her windows before dawn on Aug. 10. The same woman later reported that her home had been broken into.

Surveillance video released Monday showed a man in a long, light T-shirt and baggy, dark shorts. The video is in black and white, but in a call to 911, the woman said the man was bald, about 6 feet tall and wearing a green shirt and blue shorts.

Police are asking that anyone with information that could help solve the peeping, the burglary or both call Raleigh Crime Stoppers at 919-834-4357. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for anonymous tips that help solve cases.
