July 13, 2011|By Michelle Deal-Zimmerman | The Baltimore Sun

A Pennsylvania man has been arrested in a series of  "peeping Tom" incidents in Fenwick Island.

Ocean City Police charged 44-year-old William Devon Jones of West Chester, Pa., with peeping into the windows of three apartments at the East of the Sun complex in Fenwick Island.

During the investigation, Jones was observed by police as he rode his bicycle north from Ocean City into Delaware on Tuesday. He was then seen peeping into the windows of the complex, before returning to Ocean City. Police arrested him after a brief bicycle chase.

Jones had outstanding arrest warrants in Delaware for trespassing with intent to "peer" or "peep." Police said Jones also was a suspect in a June incident involving an assault and sex offense in Ocean City.

Jones is being held on the outstanding warrants and additional charges are pending.
