CHARLOTTE, N.C. - "He was standing right here," said Anna Hinton.

Hinton showed Eyewitness News the spot where she first saw a man, whom police said is Charlie Brown II, around her home late Friday Night.

"It's something I see on TV. I never expect for someone to be peeping in my window," said Hinton.

She said it began when her 26-year-old daughter thought she heard someone outside of her window.

Hinton said she went to another room of her home and peered out.

"I got real nervous," said Hinton, "He was pressed against the -- she could hear the screen. I have an alarm system in my house, but I got scared. I didn't expect that to be happening, to see someone up in my daughter's window."

She said she called 911 and watched as the man went into her back yard.

"That's when I said, 'Oh, my God, he is going to my window now," she said.

She said he stayed in the dark areas around the house and away from her security cameras.

She said police arrived by the time he reached her window and that the man ran, but officers caught him.

Brown is now charged with misdemeanor secret peeping.

He was convicted on the same charges in 1998 and 2009.

"I was at the wrong place at the wrong time. I went to the wrong house, and I was drinking," said Brown in court.

Hinton worries that he may have peeped into her home before, because he went straight to the two ladies' bedroom windows. She is adding more lights around her home.
