A man has been accused of being a “Peeping Tom” after CCTV allegedly caught him peering into the bedroom of a teenage girl during the night at her Sydney home.
Isaac Teu, a 30-year-old real estate agent, was arrested at his Dee Why office on Friday morning.
Superintendent Dave Darcy said two search warrants were conducted simultaneously – one at Teu’s home and another at his office.
It follows images from Collaroy Plateau filmed last Friday, showing a man peering into the window of a home.
Police said the child victim of the alleged “Peeping Tom” – a 13-year-old girl – was traumatised by the incident and unable to stay in the home or sleep at night.
They hope the arrest will go some way towards helping her cope and added this case illustrates to parents across the country what to do if your child tells you they are being watched.
The girl told her parents in early October she was being watched. That’s when they installed CCTV.
Supt Darcy said this was the right course of action.
Teu has been charged with peeping, stalking, intimidation and trespassing offences.
He’ll appear in court later this month.
