Auburn Police Officers were alerted to a reported "Peeping Tom" on Monday morning.

The incident happened at an apartment on East University Drive.

According to APD Captian Lorenza Dorsey, "A 31 year old female reported that she observed an unknown black male outside of her window."

Dorsey says that the man fled on foot before officers arrived on the scene. 

The Police Division encourages residents to help prevent these types of incidents by keeping shrubbery and trees trimmed in a manner that prevents someone from concealing themselves. You can also keep exterior areas well lit and keep shades and blinds closed at night or when you are away. APD also says you should keep doors and windows locked. 

If you see any suspicious activity you should report it to police immediately.
