KAUKAUNA - Kaukauna police say someone has been spotted looking into windows late at night.
Incidents have been reported on the city's south side throughout the summer.
Police say they want to prevent something more serious from happening.
"Suspicious people seen in backyards late at night, people seen near windows in that area," said Kaukauna Police Department Lt. Jamie Graf.
Graf says over the weekend, there were three incidents of a man looking into windows. Graf says this brings the total to more than a half dozen this summer. He says the department is asking for help from residents to prevent the peeping from becoming something worse.
"You never know what it could turn into, it could turn into breaking into the home, it could turn into an assault of someone walking down the street, so it's important for us to try to get information and try to apprehend this person."
Graf says the suspect is a man in his 30s with a medium build wearing all black.
The latest string of incidents has police stepping up patrols on the south side of town and neighbors saying they'll take extra precautions.
"Leaving a few minutes early and making sure all the doors are locked, coming home and night and pulling into the garage, making sure there is nobody around the area or extra vehicles or things like that that you are not aware of," said Kaukauna resident Jessica Poch.
"Now that we know it's this area we sure will watch for strange people and somebody that we don't know," said Kaukauna resident Bud Mueller.
Residents are advised to be extra cautious, especially at night. Graf says the incidents have taken place between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m.
"You should always be better safe than sorry in doing those preventative measures like locking your doors and windows and things like that."
Kaukauna police are asking residents to report any suspicious activity immediately.
They are also asking residents to keep outside lights on at night to aid the officers on patrol.
