ProJo: ‘Peeping Tom’ suspect found

Has the Wriston peeping Tom been found?

The Providence Journal reports today that a Woonsocket man has been detained after allegedly impersonating a public utilities worker to gain access to Goddard House:

The police say (the man) is connected to four similar incidents in which a man gained entry into women’s bathroom and shower areas and tried to photograph female students in the shower.

The Herald first broke the peeping Tom story in March, when a female student told police that “a college-age guy” entered Diman House and photographed her while in the shower. About a month later, The Herald reported a similar incident in Sears House, this time by someone described as “a male with a light complexion; possibly white or Hispanic approximately five feet six inches tall, lean build, dark hair, cut short, with a week’s worth of facial hair growth” by the Department of Public Safety.

DPS Chief Mark Porter later said the second incident was “not related” to the first, though this latest development seems to call that into question.

Look for Herald coverage of the incident later this week.
