Daniel Winn, 46, Carbon, was arrested on a Baker Warrant (to collect a DNA sample for confirmation) Wednesday by the Terre Haute Police Department.
The warrant was issued in connection to the investigation into a break-in at a Village Quarter apartment in September 2010.
Appearing before Superior Judge Michael J. Lewis Thursday, Winn was notified of the Vigo County Prosecutor's Office intentions to charge him with two class B felonies, including burglary and criminal deviant conduct within the next 72 hours.
According to a probable cause affidavit read in court by THPD Detective Dale Blunk, an unidentified female victim reported that she woke up to find a man had broken into her apartment. The victim said the man was wearing a mask and used duct tape to bind her arms and legs so that he could perform sex acts against her.
The victim reported the man told her he had been watching her for sometime.
After interaction with the man that left behind DNA evidence, the victim said the man fled through a dining room window.
Officials sent the DNA evidence to the Indiana State Police Lab for testing, which resulted in being consistent with Winn's.
The DNA sample matched one taken as part of Winn's various convictions of a criminal history in California, including two cases for burglary and one for indecent exposure.
While in court, Blunk said Winn admitted to officials he often peeped through windows at the apartment complex because is was one of "his favorite places to go peeping."
Blunk said Winn used the term "voyeurism" to explain his actions, which also included self-gratification while peeping through windows.
According to Vigo County Jail officials, Winn was remanded into custody on a $75,000 cash bond, with no 10 percent allowed, while the prosecutor's office filed formal charges in the matter.
Lewis issued a no contact order in the case, telling Winn, that if he were to be bonded out, he was to stay away from the victim as well as Village Quarter apartment complex.
Winn is scheduled to return to court January 11, to potentially face formal charges.
