Annapolis Police charged a man this week with dozens of counts of indecent exposure, and believe he is tied to incidents dating back to last year. Earlier this month, police said Eddie Jenkins, Jr, 20, went to the partially enclosed patio of a ground floor apartment in the first block of Bricin St., disrobed, and touched himself. Police later charged him in connection with 10 other peeping tom incidents dating back to May 2012 in the same area of Annapolis. In May, police warned the public about the peeping tom cases, and said Jenkins would sometimes knock on the sliding glass doors of a home to get the attention of residents.

Usually when controversial films from the 1960s and 1970s are re-released, they look laughably dated, but "Peeping Tom," Michael Powell's psychological thriller from 1960, can still give you the willies. The movie opens at the Charles Theatre today for a four-day run.The film portrays Mark Lewis (Carl Boehm), who works as a film technician, moonlights as a pornographer and in his spare time films women while he murders them, so he can watch the homemade "snuff" movies later. "Peeping Tom" is a graphic descent into the life of a sadistic pervert that effectively ended Powell's career (this was, after all, the man who made "The Red Shoes")

In his first race outside New York, Peeping Tom won the $200,000 General George Handicap yesterday at Laurel Park so convincingly that he stamped himself as a horse of national significance. A 4-year-old gelding stabled at Belmont Park, Peeping Tom capitalized on a blistering early duel by two speedsters to charge from last place, through and around horses, for a 3 1/2 -length victory. His time of 1 minute, 22 seconds for the seven furlongs fell three-fifths of a second off the 12-year-old track record of Tappiano.

A former Howard County detective who peeped into an Elkridge apartment window in January was given a sentence that will keep a conviction off his record as long as he successfully completes an 18-month probationary term. Francis Mort, 33, was sentenced to probation before judgment in Howard District Court yesterday, nearly three months after retired Washington County Judge Daniel W. Moylan found him guilty of being a peeping Tom. Before imposing sentence yesterday, Moylan, who was assigned to hear the case rather than one of Howard County's five district judges, noted Mort's clean criminal record and good driving record.

Movies featuring a bunch of profoundly disturbed people dominate today's TV schedule. What better way to celebrate the Saturday before Halloween? That most messed-up of mama's boys, Norman Bates, gets to show off his prowess with a knife in Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece of horror, suspense and misdirection, Psycho (8 p.m., TCM). The 1960 film, made cheap and fast by the unit that worked with Hitchcock on his television show, packs more surprises than a truckload of Cracker Jacks. But often overlooked is the mastery of Anthony Perkins' performance as Norman.
