Lincoln Village Creeper Arrested, Suspect Due in Court
LINCOLN VILLAGE, Ohio (Steve Levine) -- Members of a Franklin County community are fighting back after a neighbor was arrested and charged with fondling a woman and several young girls while they slept in their beds.
Taylor Lee Wise faces a dozen charges, including kidnapping, burglary, and gross sexual imposition, after allegedly sneaking into several Lincoln Village homes during a three week period.
I was asleep, I woke up, he was touching me, said Amber, 28, who discovered a man in her bedroom just a few feet from her sleeping three-year-old daughter.
Amber says she had no clue a man was sneaking around her neighborhood until after she reported the incident to police. Had she learned about the crime spree sooner, she says she never wouldve had her window open while she slept.
Its scary, he was targeting kids. It's really scary, Amber said.
Robbey Mock agrees with Amber, saying he wishes neighbors wouldve communicated more about the string of assaults that ended on September 27, when Wise was arrested after allegedly trying to enter the room of Mocks 10-year-old daughter.
I wish somebody wouldve let me know something, Mock said.
In response to Wise's alleged crimes, Lincoln Village residents are planning to create their own neighborhood watch group.
When stuff like this happens, notify everybody and put the word out, Amber said.
