Police: Man arrested multiple times for peeping in Rock Hill


A man in Rock Hill who police say has been arrested multiple times for peeping into peoples' homes was arrested again Friday.

Rock Hill police say they are very familiar with 32-year-old Travis Cousar, who they say has 20 peeping tom incidents on file. 

"We've been dealing with Travis, Mr. Cousar, for over five years now," said Captain Mark Bollinger. "The first thing that pops in everybody's mind is Mr. Cousar because he's been doing it for so long."

The latest incident happened around 12:30 a.m. on June 3, at a home on Arch Drive.

Police say the victim, a 22-year-old woman, said she was in her kitchen when she noticed a man, later identified as Cousar, peeping in the glass window of her back door.

"We were at home. We were about to eat dinner," that victim's brother told WBTV. "He just popped into the window, man. My sister looked out the window and said 'yo, someone's at the window' and immediately we just called 911."

The victim's brother told police that he confronted Cousar, who was beside the house with a bicycle, and asked him what he was doing looking into the window.

Cousar reportedly told the brother that he was having problems with his wife and that the police were looking for him, but that he didn't want any trouble.

The brother asked him to leave and Cousar walked away, but returned trying to get the bike he left beside the house. Once he realized police had been called, he left without the bike.

Police say they are as familiar with that bike as they are its owner, and that officers have even had to chase Cousar on it.

But this time, Bollinger says, Cousar was so scared by the victim's brother, that he left that bike, a key piece of evidence, behind.

Both police and the victims say they're glad Cousar was caught.

"It's a scary thought when you have families and little kids you're living with but I'm just glad he's behind bars," the victim's brother said.

Cousar is being held on a $100,000 bond.
