Actor identified as woman’s voyeur

LOCAL—A woman who complained that her house was being watched around the clock is relieved today that area police have identified the suspect.

Ashley Hudson, 33, who moved into the house 5 weeks ago, was not initially concerned.

“I noticed him looking out a window, from the video store across the street, as the moving company was bringing my furniture,” she said, “but I didn’t think he was watching me in particular. At least, not at first.”

But the man remained in place, eyes fixed on her property long after the day ended. Even at night she would periodically see the outline of a shadow watching her in darkness.

Police were dispatched to interview Don Bruckheimer, owner of the store where the peeping tom was spotted. After questioning Mr. Bruckheimer and searching the premises, a suspect was apprehended.

Identified as actor Vin Diesel, the store owner explained that he was a life-sized cardboard cutout intended as a promotional display for The Chronicles of Riddick trilogy and The Fast and the Furious film series.

No arrest was made, but police requested that Mr. Diesel be moved to a location away from the store front.
