“Peeping” Suspect Arrested Seeking Public’s Assistance (Video is on our social media platforms)

On June 8th, 2022, an arrest was made in connection with multiple “peeping” incidents in Culver City that occurred within the last week.

On June 7th, 2022, at 8:33 PM, Culver City Police Officers received a call for service of a male subject who had been looking into the front window of the reporting party’s residence. Officers responded to the residence but were unable to locate the suspect, who had fled the location prior to their arrival. The female victim advised officers that after viewing the footage from her doorbell camera, she discovered the suspect had been lurking outside her window the previous evening as well.

After a thorough investigation was conducted by Culver City Police Detectives, Shondel Larkin, a local sex registrant who is on parole for sex crimes, was identified as a suspect. Detectives also learned that Larkin, who is required to wear a GPS ankle monitor as a condition of his parole, was in the area of the victim’s residence not only on the night of this incident, but also the previous evening (June 6th 2022).

On June 8th, 2022, Culver City Police Detectives began surveilling Larkin and observed him leering at a woman inside a Culver City residence. Larkin was immediately arrested. The victim of this crime advised detectives that she did not know Larkin and he was not authorized to be on her property.

Larkin, a Culver City Resident, was booked for multiple counts of PC 647(i), peeking while prowling. He is currently being held on a parole hold at the Culver City Police Department. This case will be presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for filing consideration.

The Culver City Police Department is seeking the assistance of the public and asking that anyone who may have witnessed or been the victim of similar crimes contact Public Information Officer Sergeant Eddie Baskaron at 310-253-6316 or the Watch Commander at 310-253-6202.
