It's a disturbing thought for those who live there like Rob Montaner.
“It's really scary. I have a wife and a daughter that live here. That really concerns me a lot,” says Montaner.
He's not the only one.
“Oh, I'm so scared,” says Yuriko Clark who also has two young girls at home.
“Someone watching me for anything whatever I do makes me nervous. Yeah, I don't like it,” says Clark.
Virginia Beach Police say cracks in doors, open blinds or windows are perfect opportunities for a peeping tom to see inside your home.
They've sent out a composite created with help from several different people who got a good look at the man they caught peeking in.
Police say he was seen only at night and during the month of February, but they want this case closed now because they say cases involving peeping toms usually lead to crimes much worse.
