San Luis Obispo police arrested a prowler after a resident said they spotted him looking into their bedroom window at 2 a.m. on Monday.
While on the phone with a police dispatcher, the resident of the home in the area of South Street and King Court followed the alleged prowler.
During a police interrogation, Leroy Howell, 22, of San Luis Obispo admitted that he is also responsible for four incidents where people in the neighborhood reported a prowler either in their home, crawling through a window or peering into someone’s window that occurred during the past few weeks, police said.
