Taylor Gehrking, serial peeping tom, busted for eyeing 10-year old girl
Taylor Robert Gehrking has had a busy week.
Tuesday night, he was arrested for staring into a 10-year old girl's bedroom from his roof in Fergus Falls. Earlier in the week, he was busted for masturbating in his apartment -- with the door open for all his neighbors, including minors, to see. Now the 28-year old is being charged in Otter Tail County with felony disturbing the peace and three counts of indecent exposure.
These charges are only the latest additions to a long, twisted rap sheet for Gehrking.
Police were called to Gehrking's apartment around midnight Tuesday after a 10-year old said she saw a man peeking on her from a neighbor's roof. The girl told police that she opened a window to cool off but the window closed. When she walked over to open it again she noticed Gehrking and called police "distraught," according to the Fergus Falls Daily Journal.
Records show that Gehrking has been arrested ten times for indecent exposure in Olmsted County, which has placed a special hold on him to take him into a special care unit once his criminal charges are dealt with. Gehrking has never been convicted of his crimes due to "mental illness," according to the Journal.
