University security guard arrested on peeping Tom charges

A Clark Atlanta University security guard was arrested on peeping Tom charges on Wednesday night, police said.

Kenyon Strozier, 37, who had worked at the school since 2011 and was off duty and off campus at the time, was arrested for allegedly looking into the window of a residence in the Castleberry Hill Neighborhood.

Dawn Evans had just stepped out of the shower when she saw a silhouette of someone outside her window. When she went to check, she saw a man standing against the wall of her neighbor’s house, peeking through one of the neighbor’s bedroom windows.

She said the man was wearing a Clark Atlanta Security uniform.

When the man noticed Evans, he quickly ran away.

Evans went over to her neighbor’s, Dontreesia Jones’, house. Jones said she had seen the man as well, and also noted a Clark Atlanta Security uniform.

Jones said that the man had been looking through the window of her nine-year-old daughter’s room. Her daughter had been saying that there was a man looking through her window for the past two weeks, Jones told police.

Evans recognized the man because he used to live in her building a year ago, but was kicked out because of a peeping tom complaint.

She was able to provide police with a picture of the suspect. Clark Atlanta police recognized the suspect as Strozier, who was at the Clark Atlanta Headquarters at the time.

“Clark Atlanta University neither condones, nor will it tolerate, this behavior…” Clark Atlanta University said in an emailed statement. “The University has suspended the officer without pay and all of his University gear has been retrieved. Further action is pending the outcome of a thorough investigation, which will proceed as swiftly as possible.”

Strozier is being held in Fulton County Jail.
