JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A local man was arrested Sunday night after his neighbor's daughter caught him peeking into her home.
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office was called to a home in the 6000 block of Forest Stump Lane in reference to a prowler.
When police arrived, the homeowner had the peeping Tom suspect pinned to the ground in the back yard.
The homeowner told police that his 15-year-old daughter was sitting in the living room when she saw a silhouette outside the back window. The father immediately went outside and found James Lowery, his next-door neighbor, kneeling in front of the window.
Lowery, 60, attempted to run, but was stopped by the homeowner and detained until police arrived.
According to the teen, this was not the first time that she saw someone watching her from outside. The father told officials that they had found window screens damaged or removed several other times but they were never able to locate anyone.
Lowery told police he did not know what he was doing in his neighbor's yard and that he drank a bottle of wine earlier in the night.
He was taken into custody and charged with trespassing, disorderly intoxication and resisting an officer without violence.
