Teenager arrested in Peeping Tom case

A teenager was arrested Tuesday night by Lawrence Police on suspicion of watching a sleeping woman through a window.

A neighbor called police to the residence in the southeast area of the city. Sgt. Dan Ward, police spokesman, said that when officers arrived, the boy, identified only as a 16-year-old from Lawrence, was still looking through the window.

The 24-year-old woman inside the residence was sleeping and unaware of what was going on, Ward said.

The teen was taken to the Douglas County Juvenile Detention Center to await charges.
