Peeping Tom arrested 2 months after spying on sleeping woman

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A suspected Peeping Tom is in jail after eluding police for two months.

Police arrested Matthew Johns, who they said was caught looking into a woman's bedroom in Frayser.

The woman awoke September 5 to her dog barking at Johns who was standing outside her window and staring inside.

Officers found Johns later that night, but they did not have enough evidence to arrest him at the time. Nine days later, officers issued a warrant for John's arrest. He remained at large for nearly two months.

He was booked November 2 and charged with observation without consent.
