DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. (FOX 5 Atlanta) - Security lights and surveillance cameras did not deter a bold "Peeping Tom" Tuesday morning.
The creeper was caught on video at around 6:20 a.m. at Abigail Abrams' home on Eagles Nest Circle.
The man is seen in the video, walking into Abrams' backyard with a ladder, placing it up against the house, climbing the ladder, and peering into Abrams' upstairs bathroom window on and off for several minutes.
"Knowing that he was up there immediately I was freaked out. I was so scared", Abrams told FOX 5's Deidra Dukes.
Abrams was unaware she was being watched as she got ready for work. She made the terrifying discovery hours later while reviewing her home surveillance video.
"It's scary," she said. "It's a really scary situation, knowing I'm being invaded in this way."
Abrams met with DeKalb County Police Tuesday afternoon. She tells FOX 5 it's the second time this year her cameras have recorded a "Peeping Tom". On Feb. 1, she says surveillance cameras captured a man peering into her kitchen window. Abrams says he was wearing a hoodie so she can't be certain it was the same person. The man in Tuesday's video didn't try to shield his identity.
"He has dreads, long dreads," she said. "Looking at the picture I really can not identify exactly if it's one of my neighbors, I don't know. But my rationale is it's someone in the neighborhood."
Abrams hopes someone will recognize this man and contact DeKalb Police.
