SAN DIEGO (CBS) — A UPS deliveryman faced trespassing and other charges Thursday after allegedly watching a woman shower at a residence where he had made a earlier delivery.
KNX 1070’s Brian Ping reports residents in a neighborhood about nine miles from downtown San Diego were left stunned by the accusations.
The unidentified 26-year-old victim said driver Walter Flowers had delivered a package to her home on Tuxedo Road in San Carlos on Wednesday and then subsequently left.
Flowers, 43, then allegedly returned to her home about 15 minutes later when the woman spotted him spying on her in a hallway outside the bathroom.
Flowers was arrested after he reportedly fled the scene and then was instructed by his employers to return to the house for questioning.
Police believe Flowers had accessed the residence through an unlocked door.
One of the victim’s neighbors said Flowers had been making deliveries in the neighborhood for the last three years.
“He’s in a position of trust in the community, and if he’s at my house, dropping off packages, this is the last guy I’m worried about,” said a resident who requested not to be identified.
In response to the arrest, UPS officials said they run extensive background checks and make every possible effort to safeguard customers.
Flowers was booked on misdemeanor charges of peeping, prowling and trespassing.
