A St. Cloud man was arrested at noon today and is facing multiple charges including felony stalking.
St. Cloud police Sergeant Jason Burke says the arrest is in connection with a month long investigation into numerous incidents of exposing himself while window peeking.
A Campus Area Police officer started the investigation in the later hours of August 3rd after the CAPS unit took a prowler complaint in the 500 block of 6th Avenue South.
During the incident, officers arrested 33-year-old Kevin James Petroske after he was caught with his phone video-taping a female inside of a residence without her knowing. The investigation continued after search warrants were completed on Petroske’s phone and his home in the 700 block of 8th Avenue South.
25 separate alleged incidents of stalking and interfering with privacy were confirmed by the investigating officer.
The 33-year-old is facing 25 counts each of felony stalking, gross misdemeanor stalking and gross misdemeanor interfering with privacy.
Burke adds that it does not appear that Petroske knew his victims or had contact with them before the video-taping incidents happened.

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A $2.2 million wind turbine at a Department of Veterans Affairs facility in St. Cloud remains broken, and a series of repairs has been ineffective.
A St. Cloud Times report says there have been similar issues with wind turbines at VA facilities in two other states.
The turbine at the St. Cloud VA Health Care System hasn't worked in two years. Workers have made a series of hydraulic and electrical repairs with no luck. VA spokesman Barry Venable wouldn't say when, if ever, the turbine will generate power.
The St. Cloud site was one of four VA locations selected for wind power. A veterans' cemetery in Massachusetts has a working wind turbine, but facilities in Utah and New York have also failed.
