Officers arrested a suspected peeper early this morning after the man scaled a wall and climbed onto a third-floor balcony of a Seattle University apartment building.
At about 3:30 AM, a woman called police and campus security after she and her roommate heard noises outside a bedroom window and saw the man standing on the balcony of their apartment, near 12th Avenue and E. Cherry Street.
When the woman asked the man what he was doing, he said he was looking for someone.
When officers arrived at the scene, the suspect refused to speak with police or come down from the balcony.
Officers called in a Seattle Fire Department ladder truck, climbed the ladder and took the man into custody.
The suspect then told officers some “party poopers” had told him to scale the building walls and masturbate.
Officers then booked the man—who had reportedly been spotted pacing outside the apartment building about four hours before the incident—into the King County Jail for investigation of voyeurism.
