SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A University Heights woman said she caught a man masturbating while he watched her through a window Tuesday night.

Tessa Carpenter said she was locking her door for the night when she saw the man outside her living room window. 

“He was standing against this wall and he is watching me through my window,” she said. “He was just watching and doing his thing.”

She ran to a back room and called her neighbor who screamed to chase him off.

“She spoke up when I wasn’t sure what to do,” said Carpenter.

However, the man didn’t run away. Carpenter said he slowly sauntered off. She said it made her believe it had happened before or could happen again.

“There was a feeling of being violated kind of, not knowing how long he had been there,” she said. “I’d like to see him caught and I don’t want anyone else to have to feel this way.”

Carpenter described him as a 5’10” clean cut black man wearing a dark shirt and shorts.
