A 51-year-old Allston man was arraigned Tuesday in what Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office called an apparent “peeping Tom’’ case.
Genesio Cassimiro pleaded not guilty in Brighton Municipal Court to charges of trespassing and disorderly conduct. Judge Robert McKenna released Cassimiro on personal recognizance and ordered him to wear a GPS monitor and adhere to a curfew.
According to Conley’s office, residents of a Gardner Street building contacted Boston police after several residents saw a man standing behind bushes outside the building on multiple occasions over the past two weeks. When a resident looked toward him, the man put his phone to his ear and appeared to be having a conversation, prosecutors said.
Cassimiro was arrested by police Monday night after they found him behind some bushes in the rear of the building where he was facing an apartment window. He told police he was in the bushes to urinate, prosecutors said.
In a statement, prosecutors said there was no immediate link found between Cassimiro and another recent “peeping Tom’’ incident. That investigation was continuing, they said.
