Raleigh police charge man was peeping into a bedroom

From staff reportsJuly 16, 2013 

— A 47-year-old man was charged Tuesday with six counts of secret peeping for what police said was looking into a person’s bedroom six times over the last month.

The charges, all misdemeanors, were filed against Samuel Lyn Boone of 515 E. Lane St. in Raleigh.

Police arrested Boone at his home shortly after midnight, an arrest report says.

Arrest warrants did not disclose the location of the peeping incidents with which Boone was charged, but said they had begun June 16 and ended Tuesday.

Police spokesman Jim Sughrue confirmed that the victim of the peeping was female, but declined to disclose her age or where the incidents occurred to protect her identity.

Sughrue did say that police were led to Boone by information from a witness.

Boone, who told booking officers that he is a North Carolina State University student, was being held in lieu of $20,000 pending a court appearance later Wednesday.

The NCSU website lists him as a graduate student.
