Suspected peeper arrested in Cheney

A man with unzipped pants was arrested on suspicion of voyeurism following witness reports that he was spying on young women in Cheney late Friday.

Police responded to the 500 block of Clay Street about 10:45 p.m. Friday, where an Eastern Washington University student said she arrived home to find a man looking into her apartment window.

The woman told officers she'd seen the same man looking into her neighbor's window last week. Police didn't find anyone, but they were called back to the apartment about 11:30 p.m. on reports the same man had returned. A witness told police the man said he was getting fresh air and walked away.

Police didn't locate anyone, but officers responded to the apartments again about 12:52 a.m. after hearing reports the man's vehicle was seen driving by. They stopped the dark Hyundai SUV and identified the driver as Richard Michael Wallingford, Jr., 37, who matched the description of the peeper provided by the victims.

Wallingford's pants were unzipped when he exited the SUV, police said. Two women identified Wallingford as the man who was looking in windows.

Wallingford left jail on $7,500 bond over the week. He appeared in Superior Court today on three counts of voyeurism, where he was given an arraignment date of Feb. 22.
