An Oakland man has been arrested on suspicion of felony stalking and misdemeanor peeping after he was allegedly caught Wednesday morning looking in a Berkeley resident’s home, police said.
Pedro Jacobo, 56, was arrested around 6:30 a.m. after he allegedly was peeping into a home in the 1300 block of Hopkins Street.
Police said Jacobo allegedly peeped into the same home on Oct. 5. As officers investigated, they said they learned that others saw Jacobo peeping on two other occasions and recognized him from a photograph in a news article about him from a previous arrest.
When Jacobo allegedly showed up at the home Wednesday, police were there. As officers tried to arrest Jacobo, he allegedly ran. But police had a surrounded the area and quickly took Jacobo into custody.
Police said they also arrested Jacobo on suspicion of committing a crime while on bail and for an outstanding arrest warrant.
