EL MIRAGE, Ariz. -- An El Mirage man was arrested for reportedly taking nude photographs of a neighbor inside her bathroom.

On July 11, an El Mirage police officer responded to a home near El Mirage Road and Valentine Avenue. The reporting party told the officer that Kerby Young, 29, had taken several nude pictures of a woman without her consent.

Police spokesman Detective Robert Peoples said the pictures showed a nude woman inside the bathroom of the home. The reporting party believed the incident took place in November.

El Mirage detectives interviewed Young and he reportedly admitted taking several photos of his neighbor.

According to Peoples, Young said he placed a stepladder next to his property wall so he could see inside the bathroom.

Young was booked into jail for surreptitious photographing and voyeurism.

In 2007, Young was arrested for public sexual indecency in Phoenix and is currently on unsupervised probation.
