A 50-year-old River Forest man who has been arrested repeatedly in the past decade for window peeping is back in Cook County Jail.
North Riverside police arrested Stephan Myslicki on Feb. 2 and charged him with felony disorderly conduct, after he reportedly admitted to looking into the window of a house in the 2500 block of 9th Avenue repeatedly to view a teenage girl inside.
According to North Riverside police, a witness observed a tall man standing in the driveway of a vacant home on the night of Jan. 23. The man fled the area when a motion light was activated, leaving in a black Toyota with a burned out taillight, according to police. The same witness saw the vehicle again on Jan. 25 and again on Jan. 30, wrote down the license plate number and called police.
North Riverside and River Forest police reportedly identified Myslicki as the owner of the vehicle and located him on Feb. 2. During an interview, Myslicki reportedly admitted looking in the windows of the North Riverside home on multiple occasions during the previous two weeks.
Police notified the owners of the North Riverside home to make them aware of the allegations against Myslicki.
At a hearing on Feb. 4 a Cook County judge set Myslicki's bond at $55,000.
Myslicki is no stranger to River Forest police, who have arrested him on multiple occasions for similar offenses.
In April 2006 he was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after looking into windows in the 8000 block of Lake Street, and in December 2009 police charged him with felony disorderly conduct after he was seen walking up the driveway of a home in the 1400 block of William Street.
A year and a half later, in July 2011, Myslicki was arrested after a River Forest resident found him hiding in some bushes and looking through a window outside his home in the 1400 block of Jackson Avenue. Myslicki was charged with felony disorderly conduct, convicted and sentenced to a year in prison.
He was arrested a year later, in August 2012, after police observed him peering through a window in the 1100 block of Monroe Ave. He was sent back to prison after that arrest for violating the terms of his parole.
