A Deltona, Florida peeping tom was caught outside a woman’s window with his pants down. This isn’t going to play out well for him…
Apparently, deputies were monitoring a Deltona neighborhood for a prowler who had exposed himself to a woman last week, and they ultimately caught him on a Saturday night last August. Not only that, but this man had his pants down outside another victim’s bedroom window.
Francisco Javier Orozco Gutierrez, 37, of Deltona, was arrested by members of the Deltona Crime Suppression Team after they engaged him in a short foot chase around the corner he was prowling on at Dunlap Drive.
Deputies had been working on that case since an incident last Monday where that same suspect had been knocking on a victim’s bedroom window and then proceeded to expose himself to her when she went to her sliding glass door. The Deltona Sheriff’s Office posted a public safety alert in regards to the incident and detectives canvassed the area, speaking to neighbors, and researching the sex offenders that lived in the area. However, none of these potential suspects matched the description given by the victim.
Around 2 a.m. that following Wednesday, another resident on nearby Lavilla Street made a report of someone knocking on their front door. Once at the scene, deputies immediately found a shoe print that evidently matched a Nike sneaker.
It was around 9 p.m. on Thursday that deputies yet again responded to the victim’s home on Friday and Saturday night, and it was around 8:45 p.m. when they spotted the man peeking in the window. He was also knocking loudly on her rear sliding glass door for a number of minutes.
When the Deltona CST Sheriff’s Deputies were conducting surveillance on this residence, they noticed that he not only was looking in one window, but he transitioned to another one! The deputies also couldn’t help but notice that the guy had his pants down around his knees and his hands were occupied in front of him as well. They challenged the suspect and he stood up and ran away. However, he was apprehended by another deputy a few seconds later.
After Orozco was caught, they eventually charged him with indecent exposure, stalking, voyeurism, prowling or loitering, and possession of drug paraphernalia after the deputies found a crack pipe in the immediate area where Orozco was caught. They transported him to the Volusia County Branch jail where he was held on $33,000 bond.
