A man has been arrested for an alleged invasion of privacy that occurred near the UCLA campus in Westwood, authorities said Thursday. Another suspected peeper, wanted in a separate episode that took place in the same area, remains at large.

A witness reported that she saw a man looking into windows of apartments in the 400 block of Kelton Avenue (map) at 1:38 a.m. Tuesday, according to a news release from the UCLA Police Department.

The man immediately left the area after seeing the witness, police said. Shortly afterward, he was found by officers and taken into custody. His name was not immediately released.

About two hours earlier, at 11:40 p.m. Monday, a UCLA student said she was taking a shower at her apartment in the 10900 block of Roebling Avenue (map) when “she noticed an unknown suspect holding a cellphone reaching through the blinds of her bathroom window,” the news release said. The victim’s roommate confronted the man, who then fled.

He is described as white, 5 feet 10 inches, with a slim build and short hair. He was last seen wearing a black long-sleeve shirt and dark pants.

Investigations into both incidents are ongoing, authorities said.

Anyone with information is asked to call University of California Police Department detectives at 310-825-1491, and refer to report Nos. 14-1217 and 14-1219.
