Surveillance video catches Eau Claire man peeking into girl’s bedroom window

Eau Claire (WQOW) – An Eau Claire family’s surveillance camera caught a man peeking in their daughter’s bedroom window, and now their neighbor faces criminal charges.

John Melby, 68, was charged Tuesday with felony invasion of privacy. He is accused of looking in the window of a 16-year-old girl who was in her underwear.

Police said Melby first denied going into the neighbor’s yard, then said he may have, but didn’t remember because he had been drinking.

He eventually admitted watching the girl for five to 10 minutes.
