A 21-year-old Columbus woman taking a shower Sunday night saw a flash of light at her bathroom window and discovered a prowler outside with a digital camera, police reported.

Officers summoned to Glenn Street about 8:15 p.m. said the woman told them her suspicions were aroused by the odd flash of light. "When she looked outside, she observed a hand holding up a digital camera to the window," they reported.

Her discovery spooked the peeping tom, who ran through her backyard and jumped a fence.

She showed police a ladder had been moved from another side of the house and placed directly under her bathroom window.
