Police are looking for a peeping tom who was spotted Wednesday night outside a woman’s dining room window near Colorado College.

Hannah Varnell was sitting with her college friends around the table that night around 8, when one of the girls saw a shadow by the window. When the shadow didn’t go away, Varnell got up and looked.

She says she couldn’t believe what she saw.

Outside in the cold was a man wearing a ski mask, with his pants down. He was touching himself.

When she realized what she was doing, Varnell told her friends and called police.

“Immediately we ran around, locked all the doors, covered all of our windows...we did call 911. But it was good to have everyone around because it was more of a silly and ridiculous thing."

When the man realized he’d been spotted, he didn’t run or even pull his pants up. He simply walked away.

The suspect is described as a white male, 25-30 years old.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 719-634-STOP.

      That's a very racist comment. Please refrain from your unintelligent rhetoric. And your foolish babble.

    This man needs to be caught. This sort of behavior can precede more violent actions. Not funny, people. Take this seriously. Re: The comment "How does this make the news?" Are you kidding me? Everyone needs to be made aware so that he can be taken off the streets.

    Security lights with motion sensors are an inexpensive way to convince him that he should market his product somewhere else.

    How does this make the news?

    If CC Security weren't so busy being a taxi service for drunk students maybe they could catch people like this or prevent it from happening.

    Check outside the window, he may have left behind some DNA.
