North Riverside Police File Felony Disorderly Conduct Charges Against Peeping Tom Suspect.

On January 23, 2013 an alert resident reported that she observed a tall male white subject in the driveway of a vacant home in the 2500 block of 9th Ave. When a motion sensor light activated, the subject left the area in a black Toyota with a taillight out. This incident was reported to the police; however responding officers could not locate the subject or the vehicle.
On January 25th the same resident saw the same subject and vehicle in the area again. The resident contacted police, but the subject left the area prior to officer's arrival and could not be not located.
On January 30th the same resident once again observed the subject driving through the area, and this time was able to obtain the license plate number of the vehicle, which she provided to the North Riverside Police Department on January 31st. The investigating officer discovered that the registered owner of the vehicle had a criminal record that included four prior arrests for disorderly conduct/window peeping charges.
On Saturday February 2, 2013 North Riverside Police investigators, assisted by investigators from the River Forest Police Department, located the registered owner of the vehicle for questioning. During questioning the suspect admitted that he had been looking into the windows of a home in the 2500 block of 9th Ave. on numerous occasions over the previous couple of weeks to view a teenage girl inside of the residence. The suspect provided investigators with a written statement about his activities. Investigators contacted the residents of the home that was allegedly targeted by the suspect and made them aware of the findings of their investigation.
The facts of this case were presented to the Cook County State's Attorney's Office, who subsequently approved a felony charge of Disorderly Conduct against the suspect, 50 year old Stephen Myslicki of River Forest, IL. Myslicki was transported to a bond hearing on Monday February 4th, where his bond was set at $55,000. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on February 11th at 9:00 am at the Maybrook courthouse.
Chief Anthony Garvey stated “We are grateful to the alert resident who reported these suspicious incidents and provided us with the license plate number of the suspect’s vehicle.” Garvey also stated that “ I am very proud of the timely and effective follow up work that was conducted by all of the police officers and investigators involved in this case.”
