The man with the blue blanket who police accuse of peeping into the homes of two Rock Hill women last month and leaving behind footprints in the snow was found Sunday hiding on the back porch of a house less than a mile from where both victims live, police said.
On Feb. 12, the first victim, 68, told police she was sitting in the living room of her Emmett Street home when she saw a “shadow” coming from her window, according to a Rock Hill police report. When she looked toward the window, she saw a young man with a blue blanket looking inside. The suspect ran toward the Emmett Scott Recreation Center. Officers arrived on scene, where they found footprints but were unable to find the suspect.
Four days later, a second woman, 55, reported that while she was getting dressed for church, she spotted a man she recognized as Denzel Jacqueceacetrem Boozer standing on her deck near her window, according to another Rock Hill police report. When she spotted him, Boozer, 21, ran off the deck and down the street. The first victim, her neighbor, told her she spotted Boozer in her backyard. The second woman told police she saw footprints in the snow outside her bedroom window the same day her neighbor reported seeing Boozer with the blanket. She was able to identify Boozer in a photo lineup, the report states.
At about 9:15 a.m. Sunday, police spotted Boozer standing in front of a Lucky Court house, less than a mile away from both victims’ homes, the report states. As they searched for him, they found him hiding on the house’s back porch. He was arrested and charged with two counts of peeping voyeurism/aggravated peeping. On Monday, he was being held at the York County Detention Center on a $30,000 bond.
