Palo Alto police arrested an East Palo Alto man on Thursday after he was spotted allegedly watching two young girls as they showered in a hotel.
Jose Refugio Cesar Garcia, 47, was detained near the Oaks Motel at 4279 El Camino Real after police were called there around 9:15 p.m. on a report of a peeping incident.
A family at the hotel told police that they had been giving their two young daughters, both under 7 years old, a shower when they spotted a man outside watching through the window.
The father confronted the suspect, who left on foot, and then contacted the hotel’s front desk staff, who called police.
Garcia was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor peeping and a felony probation violation. He was on probation out of San Francisco County for soliciting a lewd act and resisting arrest.
