Jason Zeringue

A Denham Springs man was arrested for a second time this month after he was twice accused of looking through the windows at the Wildwood apartment complex in Baton Rouge, according to Baton Rouge police reports.

Two separate residents reported on Feb. 7 that a man was looking through their windows and crawling under the windows at the complex, which is located at 5959 Burbank Drive, according to the report. A security guard responded to the calls and found a man who claimed he had been there to tutor a resident. The man was allowed to leave, but the security guard took pictures of the man and his vehicle and shared them with police for further investigation.

On March 1, a resident of Wildwood called police to report that a man was peeping through her window. She said he had been there before, looking through her window. She provided a similar description of him and the car he was driving as had been reported to security in February. A Baton Rouge police officer showed up just as 44-year-old Jason Robert Zeringue was leaving. He was booked on six counts of Peeping Tom, according to separate arrest reports.

He posted $6,000 bail the next day and was released from jail, but an investigator showed a photo lineup of Zeringue from the March incident with photos of the man in the Feb. 7 incident to the security guard, according to a police report.

Zeringue, of 7503 Linda Lee Drive, Denham Springs, was again arrested on one count of Peeping Tom Wednesday on an arrest warrant that alleges he was the man looking through windows on Feb. 7.
