Prowling SLO porno watcher pops up again

May 9, 2017

For the fourth time this year, San Luis Obispo police received a report of a man shining a flashlight into a woman’s bedroom at night or early in the morning. In the latest incident, as was the case at least once previously, the prowler was watching pornography while standing outside the bedroom and shining the light.

Around 12:20 a.m. Tuesday, a female living in the 600 block of Johnson Avenue awoke to sounds outside her bedroom window. When she looked outside, she saw a man holding a cell phone and watching a pornographic video while shining a light into the bedroom, according to SLOPD.

At first, the victim called her landlord who lives nearby. The landlord checked the area, but the suspect was already gone.

Officers did not manage to locate the suspect because of to an approximately 20 minute delay in reporting time, a SLOPD news release states.

The three similar incidents took place in January and February and all occurred in the same general area, police say. In all four of the incidents, the victim only managed to see the suspect’s profile and could not provide additional descriptions.

Officials said the department has received multiple late reports of possible prowler sightings in recent months.

Investigators are requesting that residents immediately report prowlers to the police department, as any delay dramatically reduces the chances of locating the suspect. Anyone who has information about prowlers is encouraged to call the police department at 805-781-7312 or Crime Stoppers at 805-549-STOP.

Be on the look out for an ambidextrous multi-tasker. Holding a phone in one hand while watching porn–and using a flashlight with the other hand (while scanning it through a window) demonstrates a rather peculiar skill set. Thank goodness he didn’t have a 3rd hand–because we KNOW what that would be doing.


And sure, the police say they didn’t catch this guy because of the 20 minute delay when she called the landlord–but WHY didn’t they catch him the last 3 times he got away and the police WERE called?

“Quite elementary, my good Dr. Watson; one either dons a headlamp or uses the flashlight feature on the back of the phone whilst viewing the screen on the front, thus leaving one hand free to..well um, we shan’t come, as it were, to conclusions before all the facts are in”.

Excellent summation if I do say so myself.

In the world or perverts..would he considered a “phon(e)y?”

Getting that attention they so richly deserve….

Weird and probably pretty scary for these women. He will pick the wrong house one of these days and catch a Louisville slugger to the ribs…we can only hope.

WHY would she call the landlord first?????

Does she have arrest warrants?


Ladies, leave on an outdoor light. If you see someone, CALL 911 immediately.
