A peeping Tom has repeatedly showed up outside the bedroom of a Sea Pines resident, the 81-year-old victim told the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.

The Hilton Head Island woman told deputies she has seen a silhouette of a man of average build at least twice a week since Sept. 1, according to a crime report. Most recently, she saw the figure at 6:30 a.m. Sept. 24 and at 6 a.m. Monday.

The suspect appears to walk up to her windows, look inside and then quickly leave, according to the report. Several peeping Tom incidents were reported in Sea Pines in spring 2008, and the community's representatives told deputies security patrols around the victim's home have been increased.
