Brookfield police plan to cite a 38-year-old West Allis man for disorderly conduct in connection with two peeping incidents at Wirth Park on Friday.
Police said they were called to the park, 2585 Pilgrim Road, after someone reported a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot. When police approached the man's van, they saw the man duck down and pretend he was sleeping. Officers saw a pair of binoculars in the vehicle they suspect the man was using to watch a group of young girls playing at the park, and police told the man to leave.
Later in the day, a 13-year-old girl reported that a man was looking at her while she was changing inside a vehicle in the parking lot. The girl said she kept yelling at the man to go away, and he eventually fled westbound away from the park. She described the man as a white male in his late 30s, 5-foot-8 with a thin build and curly brown hair.
Police said they are working on connecting the two incidents and plan to issue a disorderly conduct citation against him.
