BELMONT (CBS SF) – A Belmont man was arrested Monday morning after a female neighbor said she saw him taking pictures of her with a cellphone camera through her bathroom window, according to police.

Just before 10 a.m., the woman, who lives in the 1900 block of Arbor Avenue, reported that a man wearing a black shirt was photographing her through the partially open window.

The woman told police the man fled when he realized she knew he was there.

    Big deal, I used to do the same and none of the women I took pictures of never complained, but them again, they were my fellow Democrats. I even sent some of them pictures of me.
