Forsyth Co. Peeping Tom arrested in Cleveland

By B.J. Williams News Director
CUMMING - A Cleveland man has been arrested in connection with a Peeping Tom incident at Belk in Cumming last weekend.

Forsyth County Sheriff's Deputy Doug Rainwater said Randy William Wilson, 38, was identified as the suspect after investigators received a tip from someone who had seen surveillance photos on local media.

Authorities from Forsyth County tracked Wilson to his house in Cleveland.

"He ran from us...there was a brief foot chase and it lasted only a few moments and we were able to catch him near his home," said Rainwater.

For now, Wilson is in the White County Detention Center, but he will be turned over to Forsyth County authorities to face two felony counts of Peeping Tom, according to Rainwater.

"He's being held without bond in the White County Detention Center based on a parole violation...he has also been charged previously and convicted with being a Peeping Tom in the past."

Rainwater said Wilson also was spotted by public tipsters at North Georgia Premium Outlets in Dawson County earlier in the week.

The Peeping Tom incidents in Forsyth County occurred the afternoon of March 29 at the Belk store in Lakeland Plaza.
