Upper Darby police superintendent Michael Chitwood says 25-year-old Darren Brown is in the county prison, being held in lieu of $40,000 bail, charged with loitering and prowling at night, and indecent exposure.
Chitwood says a female victim positively identified Brown as the man who was looking into her apartment last week at the Laurel Manor Apartments, in the 1200 block of Providence Road.
The woman later spotted him over the weekend in a store, and called police. But he left before they got there.READ MORE: Report: Sixers Sign Center Andre Drummond To 1-Year Deal
Chitwood says police on Monday circulated video clips from the store and photos of the man. But he says one of his men played a hunch on Monday, and it paid off.
“The police captain sat on the Laurel Hill Manor Apartment complex for about two hours,” Chitwood says. “And, lo and behold, here comes the man in the video that we released.”
Chitwood says Brown lived in the complex. He says police believe Brown may be connected to other “peeping” events reported in the complex that began July 28th and ended last week.MORE NEWS: CDC Says There's 'Substantial' Level Of COVID-19 Transmission In Parts Of Pennsylvania, Delaware And New Jersey Region
