Police are searching for a prowler who they believe has been peeping into women’s bedrooms in two San Luis Obispo neighborhoods in recent months.
According to the San Luis Obispo Police Department, a woman heard sounds outside her bedroom early Thursday, and when she looked, she saw a man shining a flashlight into her room while watching pornography on a cellphone.
Officers responded to the 400 block of Kentucky Street about 4 a.m., but the prowler had already fled on foot, according to a news release.
The woman told officers that she experienced a similar incident about 10:15 p.m. Feb. 5, but she didn’t report it until the second incident, police said.

Investigators believe the two incidents are related to another report of a prowler, which occurred at 3:45 a.m. Jan. 22 on the 1300 block of Foothill Boulevard. The woman in that case also reported a man pointing a flashlight into her bedroom window. Neither woman could provide a description of the person to police. The investigation is ongoing.
