During 2020 and 2021, police said they received multiple reports from Wallingford residents of a "Peeping Tom" looking through people's windows.

In July 2021, officers responded to Clifton Street for a report that someone in a victim's backyard was looking into the home through the window.

Responding officers found concrete blocks stacked near the window. Officers say they also found several other pieces of evidence in the area.
