ORANGE COUNTY, FL – A father noticed something out of place while he was mowing the lawn.  There was a bald spot under his 8 and 11-year-old daughter’s window.

WFTV-TV reports that a man was outside the window the night of the father’s discovery.  He was spotted used a cinder-block to get a better view.  The father ran after the peeping Tom, but he got away.  He hopped a neighbor’s fence.

The father doesn’t think that this was the first time this suspect has visited their home.   The grass was worn down too much in the area directly below the window.

Deputies found a white napkin with DNA on it, according to a report.  They were also able to lift a suspect’s fingerprints off the window.  They are still looking for the suspect.

The father has taken additional measures to step up security after the incident.
