That night at around 10pm, the father who was staking out the area, caught a man outside his daughter’s window peeking in using a cinder-block to get a better view.
The father yelled at the man and he ran away, hopping over a neighbor’s fence and into the night.
Deputies found a lead, a white napkin in the area with fresh DNA on it. They were also able to lift a suspect’s fingerprints off the window. They are still seeking the suspect.
