Peeping Tom Incidents in North Bethesda

Montgomery County Police 2nd District detectives are investigating “peeping tom” incidents that have occurred in North Bethesda. Since April 26, 2010, there have been four reports of “peeping tom” activity at residential apartments which all involve a similarly described black male suspect, in his 30’s or 40’s. One other incident may be related, but the suspect fled before his intentions were clear. The incidents have occurred at night and during early morning hours.
  • 5400 block of Marinelli Road (map location 1): On Monday, April 26, at approximately 7:30 a.m., the female victim noticed some movement at her window and saw the suspect crouching by the corner of the window.
    Description: B/M, 30s, 5’9”-5’10”, 200 lbs.

  • 5800 block of Edson Lane (map location 2): On Friday, May 28, at approximately 10:15 p.m., the female victim saw the suspect walking behind the apartment building and looking into windows.
    Description: B/M, 40s, 5’10”, wearing a work shirt.

  • 5800 block of Edson Lane (map location 2): On Wednesday, June 2, at approximately 9:50 p.m., the victim was undressing in her ground level apartment when she noticed a red light coming from the side of her bedroom curtains. She thought it was possibly some sort or recording device such as a video camera or cell phone. The victim looked closer and saw a black male suspect standing next to the window. A witness reported that just prior to this incident he observed an individual matching the suspect description walking behind the apartment complex.
    Description: B/M, 35-40, 5’11”- 6’, 220-230 lbs., wearing a button-up t-shirt and dress pants.

  • 10600 block of Montrose Avenue (map location 3): On Saturday, June 5, at approximately 3:30 a.m., the female victim awoke to noises on her balcony and saw a black male suspect outside on the balcony. When the suspect knew that he had been seen, he jumped off the balcony and fled. (It is not known if this was a related peeping tom, because the suspect fled before his intent was known.)

  • 5400 block of Marinelli Road (map location 1): On Monday June 7, at approximately 7:00 a.m., the victim was dressing her children in her bedroom when she saw movements by the window. She saw the suspect looking in the window through the blinds. The victim walked out of a back door in time to see the suspect walking away towards Citadel Avenue.
    Description: Black male, 30s, 5’8”-6’2”, 150-200 lbs., wearing a peach-colored shirt and dark tie.
