Man arrested for peeping into household windows, Butler County Sheriff says
HAMILTON, Ohio (WXIX) - A Hamilton man was arrested Thursday after allegedly peeping into windows in Liberty Township, according to Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones.
Kevin Ayers, 36, is a registered sex offender with previous convictions for voyeurism, Sheriff Jones said.
Butler County detectives were able to arrest Ayers after people in the community sent police more than 25 tips, identifying the suspect.
“Thanks to the help of the public, we were able to identify the suspect quickly,” Jones said. “This could have escalated into something much more severe.”
Jones previously asked for help identifying a man caught on security camera peering into residents’ windows at Four Bridges subdivision in Liberty Township.
The video (see tweet below) is from Aug. 22 around 1:30 a.m. Jones says the peeper was spotted doing this again last week on Sept. 5 at 10:50 p.m.
“The concerning thing is he’s coming back to the same one,” BCSO Det. Joe Nerlinger told FOX19 NOW. “The first video that was made public he’s looking in. We’re not sure that he’s aware that there is a camera. The more concerning one is the second time he came back he appears to be attempting to cover his face.”
Ayers posted a $250 bond on a criminal trespass charge, according to the Butler County area two court clerk.
His arraignment is set for September 14 at 8:30 a.m.
This is not the first time Ayers has been arrested.
In 2015, Ayers was arrested for taking photos of a nude woman while masturbating in Anderson Township, according to Hamilton County court documents.
Ayers was also convicted of masturbating in Withrow Nature Preserve and on his apartment balcony while trying to get his neighbors attention in 2012, his records show.
