A 51-year-old man was charged Tuesday for allegedly being an Allston peeping Tom.
Genesio Cassimiro, 51, of Allston was arraigned in Brighton District Court this morning after Allston residents told Boston Police that he had been lurking around their home.
Cassimiro faces charges of trespassing and disorderly conduct.
Assistant District Attorney Michael V. Glennon requested that bail be set in the amount of $1,000; Judge Robert McKenna released Cassimiro on his own recognizance and ordered him to wear a GPS monitor, stay away from the location of the incident, and abide by a curfew.
Glennon said residents of a Gardner Street building contacted Boston Police after observing a man, later identified as Cassimiro standing behind bushes at the rear of the building for an extended period of time.
Multiple residents reported seeing the same man lurking around the home at night on several occasions in the past two weeks, each time placing his phone to his ear when witnesses made visual contact with him, prosecutors said.
After speaking with witnesses, officers located Cassimiro behind the bushes at the rear of the building, where they observed him facing the apartment’s window, prosecutors said. He allegedly told police that he was in the bushes to urinate.
No link has been established between this case and another, similar case from Allston that remains under investigation by Boston Police. Anyone with information is urged to contact detectives at (617) 343-4256.
