Peeping Tom Busted Hiding In Septic Tank
Cops: Feces-covered man hid under women's loo
JULY 8--An alleged peeping Tom was arrested yesterday after a woman and her young daughter spotted him inside a septic tank beneath the women’s restroom at an Oklahoma park.
According to a Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office report, Kenneth Webster Enlow was peering up at the 29-year-old woman and her seven-year-old daughter from inside the muck-strewn vault in White Water Park.
The woman told investigators that she was taking her child to the bathroom “when she saw that there was a man underneath the toilet looking up at her and her daughter.” Enlow, she added, “was sitting down and that he never said anything or asked for help.”
After deputies were summoned to the park, Enlow, 52, was removed from the tank by rescue workers, who used a fire hose to clean off the grimy 6’, 240-pound suspect (who was, deputies noted, “covered in feces”).
Enlow, pictured in the above mug shot, claimed to investigators that a woman named Angel had hit him in the head with a tire iron, then drove him--in a 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo--to the park and “dumped him in the toilet.”
Despite that explanation, deputies still opted to hit Enlow with a peeping Tom charge. He was booked into the Tulsa County jail, where he is being held in lieu of $500 bond on the misdemeanor count.
By TSG’s count, Enlow is the third man to be arrested for septic tank peeping.
New Hampshire resident Gary Moody has twice been collared for climbing down into the waste vault below toilets in the White Mountain National Forest. After his first arrest, Moody claimed he had dropped his wedding ring down the toilet. Following his second bust, he claimed that he went into the tank to retrieve a shirt he had dropped.
In June 2011, Luke Chrisco was arrested when he was discovered hiding inside the tank of a portable toilet at a yoga festival in Boulder, Colorado. Chrisco was charged with unlawful sexual contact and criminal invasion of privacy. (2 pages)
