FT. LAUDERDALE (CBS4) – A Coral Springs man accused last year of being a ‘Peeping Tom’ was back in court on Tuesday for allegedly peeping at another woman.
During the court hearing Kenneth Parkerson, 30, was formally charged with burglary and voyeurism. He’s being held without bond.
According to the arrest report, last Friday just after 10 p.m, Parkerson jumped a six foot privacy wall adjacent to the master bathroom of a home in the 100 block of SW 89th Way. The woman in the bathroom would later tell police she was undressing to take a shower when she saw a man watching her through a window. She said she screamed for her husband and ran into the living room.
The woman’s husband ran outside and saw Parkerson climbing over the privacy wall. He ran up and grabbed Parkerson and tried to hold him down while his wife called police. According to the report, Parkerson screamed for the man not to hurt him or his dogs which he had brought with him. Parkerson was able to free himself from the man’s grip and ran off.
“This is the kind of kid that does it over and over again,” said the victim’s husband, declining to give his name. “I understand he got caught last year and got the crap beat out of him by some guy. He’s lucky I didn’t kill him.”
Arriving officers found the dogs. Their dog collars contained Parkerson’s information. A short time later Parkerson’s father arrived and said he had gotten a call from his son who said his dogs had been stolen from the ‘incident location’, according to the report.
Investigating officers later learned that Parkerson was on pre-trial release for another voyeurism incident last year in which he allegedly videotaped a then-pregnant Dorothy Fajkis and her husband.
CBS4 spoke to Fajkis Tuesday about Parkerson’s recent arrest.
“At first I was relieved he’s in jail but then I got upset he was able to do it again. I don’t know what it will take — what he has to do for the system to keep him in jail or treat him,” said Fajkis.
Fajkis says she’s still unnerved about what happened to her family.
“We had to get a security system, money we could have used for the new baby,” she said. “We can’t spend time on our patio, we’re still afraid.”
In last Friday’s incident, Parkerson’s ankle monitor was found in his car in Margate. He told a judge Tuesday that he cut off the monitor on Friday.
The stepdaughter of the most recent victim told CBS4, “I think he needs to go to prison a long time. It’s been happening for years and no one does anything about it.”
The victim’s husband echoed those sentiments, calling Parkerson a “punk” whose been known to cause trouble in the neighborhood.
“Hopefully he won’t get out for 10 years,” the husband told CBS 4′s Carey Codd. “He’s an awful person. He violates your privacy and it’s just bad.”
