Window peeper wearing only a Reagan mask and a sock caught on security camera

VESTAVIA HILLS, Ala., Jan. 4 (UPI) -- An Alabama couple's security cameras captured footage of a New Year's Eve window-peeper clad only in a Ronald Reagan mask and a sock over his genitals.

Danielle Yancey, star of Bravo reality show Jersey Belle, said her husband Bart spotted a shadow in the breezeway of their Vestavia Hills home after taking out the trash. He chased the masked prowler while calling 911 on his cellphone.

The man was able to get away from Yancey's husband and police were unable to locate him.

"It was so cold outside,'' Yancey told AL.com. "The police said he wouldn't last long outside nude like that."

Yancey posted security camera footage of the suspect to Facebook.

"I know a lot of people are laughing about it and, honestly, I got a chuckle from it later, but at the same time, it's very concerning,'' Yancey told AL.com. "I don't know what he was planning on doing."

"He could have been messed up on drugs or alcohol, and in that mindset you don't know what he would do to someone else," Yancey said.

"I don't think he had a gun on him, but he could have potentially hurt us or we could have hurt him,'' she said. "Even if it was a prank, it could have become very scary and dangerous quickly."

Vestavia Hills police Lt. Kevin York said police received another report of a teenage streaker in the neighborhood about 10 minutes after the incident, but officers remained unable to locate the suspect.

"I hope he never does it again because he could have been unlucky," Yancey said. "Maybe we spooked him off enough not go to another house and not do it again."
