Mohawked Knoxville Man Arrested For "Peeping" Into Woman's Window For Extended Period

A mohawked Knoxville man is now behind bars after police said he was peeping into a woman's window for a "prolonged period of time" before resisting arrest.

The Knoxville Police Department responded to West Jackson Avenue around 5:30 p.m. Monday after a neighbor called in the complaint of a man trespassing on his property. According to the police report, Douglas Peek told officers the victim had contacted him about a suspicious man looking into her apartment's windows for a long time. Peek described the suspect to officers, saying he was a white man with a mohawk, wearing a red shirt.

Responding officers then saw a man matching that description 30-year-old Wade Seeber exiting a tall, wooden fence from an area KPD said was marked as private property. Officers said that when they made contact with Seeber, he ignored commands to lay down and put his hands behind his back.

Seeber was arrested on charges of criminal trespassing and resisting arrest. He's being held on a $1,500 bond.
