Nightmare Landlord

DECEMBER 8--A Pennsylvania landlord snuck into his tenant’s apartment and masturbated on the female victim’s dirty clothing, a vile act that was recorded by a motion-activated security camera inside the residence.

Thomas Fallon, 67, has been charged with burglary and criminal trespass, both felonies, and criminal mischief in connection with the incident at a residence in Castle Shannon, a Pittsburgh suburb.

Fallon, president of an electrical contracting firm, was arrested earlier this month and is scheduled for a December 12 preliminary hearing in District Court. According to a criminal complaint, the victim lives in an apartment that shares an address with Fallon’s company.

The victim told police that she recently purchased a “Wi-Fi enabled security system and placed cameras in her bedroom” due to suspicions that “someone had been going through her personal effects, specifically her clothing” over the past few months.

The woman contacted police last Friday after receiving an alert on her phone reporting that the security system had detected motion in her bedroom. The system captured a series of still images showing Fallon “in a state of undress” inside the victim’s bedroom, a police officer reported.

The photos showed that Fallon had “his penis exposed and was masturbating into the victim’s soiled clothing which she wore yesterday,” alleges the complaint, which notes that the woman identified Fallon, her landlord, as the man in the photos.

When Fallon was later interviewed by police, he acknowledged entering the woman’s apartment that morning without giving her notice, but claimed that he was “present to fix a hot water heater.”

Seen above, Fallon reportedly denied having entered the woman’s bedroom while making the purported repair. But when a cop presented Fallon with “photos of him pleasuring himself onto the victim’s clothing,” the landlord “terminated the interview.”

In late-September, a Colorado landlord was sentenced to two years in prison for sneaking into the apartment of a married couple and having sex with another man on the victims’s bed. (1 page)
