SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah - Police are looking for an alleged "peeping Tom" at an apartment complex in South Salt Lake.

Officials searched the large complex at 3800 S. 700 W.

A woman called police at about 5 a.m. Wednesday to report a "suspicious man" peering into an apartment window.

When officers arrived, one spotted the alleged "peeping Tom," who apparently also saw police and took off.

Police called in a K-9 officer to help and set up a containment area, but the suspect evaded officers.

Officers described the suspect as a man in his 20s, standing about 5-feet-5-inches tall with curly brown, shoulder-length hair.

Police said they have received five calls about voyeurism at the apartment complex, and the first incident was reported on August 24.

South Salt Lake Police said they would like to speak to anyone who might have information at (801) 840-4000.
