An Iowa man was arrested on Friday after being accused of breaking into college women’s apartments and recording them while they were sleeping, according to the Des Moines Register and local police.
According to a news release from Ames Police Department, the man is identified as 29-year-old Trenton Williams. The news release said that Williams’ arrest is linked to an investigation that started in May 2019 after several college women reported break-ins at their apartment buildings in Campustown, located near Iowa State University.
Police Commander Jason Tuttle told the Des Moines Register that a victim of one of the incidents showed police a video of Williams intruding in her apartment, which allowed them to obtain search warrants to investigate the suspects’ apartment and his other belongings, including his cellphone, the news release said.
“That’s where we found further videos of him going inside to many apartments and filming girls as they slept,” Tuttle told the publication.
According to the news release, the investigation is ongoing. As the Des Moines Register reported, police are working to determine if the victim’s apartments that were targeted are random or if the suspect knew them.
The Ames Police Department is still investigating these incidents. Anyone with information is asked to call 515-239-5133.
