Man arraigned for peeping into Royal Oak home
A Clinton Township man was arraigned Friday after he was arrested by Royal Oak police for allegedly window peeping.
Norman Korzec, 47, was arraigned in 44th District Court in Royal Oak on charges of fleeing and eluding a police officer, a felony which carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison and trespassing, a misdemeanor, which carries a penalty of up to 93 days in jail. His bond was set at $50,000 by Judge Donald Chrisholm.
Royal Oak police said the incident occurred around 4:50 a.m. on Wednesday when a woman in the 2100 block of Dallas called 911 to report a man knocking on her bedroom windows.
Upon arrival, officers saw Korzec disappear into the backyard and enter a vehicle down the block. Officers chased after the vehicle, which sped out of the neighborhood onto Interstate 696, police said.
Korzec was temporarily able to elude officers until a Ferndale officer saw the suspect as he pulled into a convenience store on Nine Mile and Pinehurst. He was arrested and turned over to Royal Oak police.
Royal Oak police said Korzec's was previously convicted for home invasion, window peeping, indecent exposure, resisting arrest, domestic violence, and concealing stolen property.
His next court appearance is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday in the 44th District Court before Judge Jamie Wittenberg.
