Synopsis: On 9-19-2012 at approximately 2348 hours Mendocino County Sheriffs Deputies were dispatched to a possible prowler/trespass incident located on Mill Creek Road.

Deputies responded and contacted Victim #2 and her nine (9) year old daughter at the residence. Deputies learned that on 9-19-2012 at approximately 2330 hours the listed suspect, who was not known to the victims, was observed peeking through the kitchen window inside the residence. They further observed that the suspect had attempted to open up the bathroom window. The victims told the suspect to leave and then called 911.

The deputies then attempted to locate the suspect in the area.

Approximately thirty (30) minutes later, deputies received information that the suspect had entered into Victim #1's yard which activated her security system. Victim #1 looked out her window and observed the suspect standing outside her window. She then telephoned 911.

Deputies quickly arrived at her residence, at which time Sergeant Mike Dygert located the suspect in close proximity to Victim #1's front door.

The suspect was arrested for trespass and transported back to the Sheriff's Office.

Once at the Sheriff's Office, the suspect was interviewed. The suspect advised that he was walking on Mill Creek Road when he observed a large television illuminating from the living room window. The suspect advised he was able to hear the sound of several female voices that emanated from within the residence. He advised he became sexually excited and walked to the rear of the residence at which time he peeked through the window in an attempt to view the females. It was at this time that he was observed and then confronted by Victim #2 who told him to leave.

The suspect was then booked into the Mendocino County Jail on the listed charges. His bail was set at $15,000.
