MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Memphis Police Department is looking into reports of a suspicious man looking into people’s windows in Midtown.

Officers were called to a home on Tutwiler Avenue just after midnight on Monday morning. A witness said he noticed a red Toyota Camry parked in front of the home while he was walking his dog.

The witness described the man as a middle aged man with a bald head and glasses who was looking into the back window before he got back into his vehicle and drove away.

"It's pretty creepy to know someone is invading your privacy like that," one woman who did not want to be identified said.

Police said the man got back into his vehicle after the confrontation and drove away.

The woman feels lucky she wasn't hurt by the peeper and thankful her neighbor spotted the man. She had just left her home to pick up a friend when her neighbor saw a man peeking in her window.

"I assumed he was waiting to follow her in the house when she got home," the neighbor said. 

The neighbor said when the woman returned home the man got in his car and left. He said he told the woman to call 911 and he got in his car and followed the man to Tutwiler Avenue and University Park.

"He said 'what are you doing?' I said 'I saw what you were doing and I know what you're about to do so I'm going to turn you into the police,'" the neighbor said.

The neighbor said the man took off in his car, but he got a photo of the back with drive out tags.

Neighbors said they have seen the suspect late at night, and when he is spotted he comes out of the shadows as if he hasn't done anything wrong. 

Similar incidents happened in March and April on Tutwiler. Surveillance cameras picked up images of the man, but no arrests have been made.

It’s unclear if the two incidents are related.

    It was unclear why law enforcement began chasing the vehicle, though a local sheriff said it was the result of "good police work."
