Jefferson city man arrested for sexual misconduct
JEFFERSON CITY - Police arrested a man early Friday after reportedly finding him outside an apartment complex, looking into a window.
Jefferson City officers arrested 19-year-old Anthony Craig on suspicion of sexual misconduct, sexual abuse, assault, burglary and property damage.
Police had gotten a number of complaints from people about a man looking into their windows. When spotted by the residents, the man would run away.
Officers report they saw Craig at Hawthorne Park apartment complex, where he lives, at around 5:30 a.m. Friday, and when they confronted him, they said he ran to a nearby apartment. Craig then apparently broke into the apartment through a door and hid in a back room, where police found and arrested him.
Investigators said Craig confessed to sexual misconduct, and also learned about another incident in which he allegedly got into a woman's apartment.
Craig was booked into the Cole County Jail and is awaiting formal charges from the Cole County Prosecutor.
