SALT LAKE CITY — A man already charged in connection with several cases has been charged again after police say peeped inside a teen girl’s window on several occasions.

Luis Alberto Argumedo, 22, of Salt Lake City, was charged Monday in 3rd District Court with sexual solicitation of a child, a third-degree felony; stalking, a class A misdemeanor; and lewdness and voyeurism, both class B misdemeanors.

On May 13, a 16-year-old girl was awakened at 3 a.m. by Argumedo peering in her window, according to charging documents. His pants were down and he wrote a message in the dust on the window, offering her $100 for sex, the charges state.

On May 19, Argumedo was spotted outside the girl’s window again, at 1 a.m.

The girl reported the incidents to police, and then was able to pick Argumedo out of a photo lineup. When questioned by police, Argumedo admitted to peering inside the girl’s window seven times, the charges state.

Prosecutors noted in their charges that Argumedo’s “behavior appears to be escalating and the state has serious concerns about public safety.”

On July 23 he was charged with enticing a minor over the internet, a second-degree felony, for allegedly offering an undercover officer posing as a 13-year-old girl marijuana in exchange for a sex act, according to charging documents.

On April 29 Argumedo was charged with two counts stalking and failing to stop for police. In that case, he is accused of following two females around “because he found them attractive,” looking inside their homes, and leaving a sex toy in the mailbox of one of the females, charging documents state.

In both May and June, he was charged with lewdness in Salt Lake City Justice Court.
