CITRUS HEIGHTS, Calif., March 31 (UPI) -- Police say a composite sketch of a window peeper going viral online due to its unusually large and menacing eyes has been labeled accurate by witnesses.

The Citrus Heights Police Department in California said the sketch of a suspect wanted in numerous window-peeping incidents and in connection with a sexual assault was based on accounts from numerous witnesses who spotted the man during the incidents, which began in January.

The sketch quickly went viral online, with some commenters expressing amusement at the man's seemingly unrealistically large eyes.

Police said witnesses were adamant that the man's eyes are accurately depicted in the sketch.

"They pretty much identified that the sketch was similar to the person that they saw," Officer David Moranz of the Citrus Heights Police Department told KXTL-TV. "The eyes, that's been the main point."
