SALT LAKE CITY — Police have arrested a man who they say has been "peeping and creeping" around a Salt Lake apartment complex since last year.

Luis Alberto Rojano, 39, of Salt Lake City, was arrested March 27 for investigation of voyeurism, driving on a suspended license, driving without an interlock device and having an open container in his vehicle, according to a Salt Lake County Jail report.

Formal charges had not been filed as of Tuesday. But a search warrant affidavit indicates that police are having Rojano's cellphone examined by the Utah State Crime Lab to determine how extensive the alleged voyeurism might be.

On March 20, Rojano went to an apartment complex at 650 N. 300 West "and looked into multiple windows of one of the apartments, using a bench to help him look in a window," according to the report.

A woman who lives in the apartment was able to record Rojano using a surveillance camera, the warrant states.

"I learned from the resident that Rojano had been coming to this apartment complex for possibly years peeping in windows," the warrant states. "The complex manager had several videos of Rojano peeping and creeping on the property."

The complex manager referred the officer to the apartment complex president who "stated not only had she captured him on video peeping in a resident’s window, she had also caught him getting into a vehicle as he was leaving the complex," the affidavit states.

Investigators collected information from residents and learned that Rojano was typically peering into windows on Wednesdays between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m., according to the warrant. On Wednesday, March 27, an officer conducted surveillance on the complex and reported spotting Rojano on the property.

"Rojano initially lied, but eventually confessed to peeping in windows since December 2018 at this apartment complex," according to the warrant.

"Rojano stated he peeped in windows because it excited him sexually and gave him an adrenaline rush," the police report added.
