Police have arrested a man who was allegedly discovered staring at a woman in a shower stall at a caravan park in Byron Bay last week.

The 37-year-old woman from Highton, Vic, was on holidays in the town with her husband and children when the incident occurred.

At about 8.11am on Tuesday, September 18, the victim was getting dressed in the park’s shower block when she allegedly saw a male staring at her from under the cubicle’s dividing wall.

The victim screamed and the man ran away.

Her husband located the man in the park and followed him into the Byron Bay CBD.

The matter was reported to police who found a 40-year-old man of no fixed abode in a Byron Bay pub.

The man was charged with trespass and peep or pry and bailed to appear before Byron Bay Local Court on November 18.
