Police arrested an apartment resident after maintenance personnel working in an attic discovered holes in the ceiling above his neighbor's apartment.

Police have identified the suspect as Carlos Perez, 26.

Tulsa Police found holes in the ceiling of several more apartments at Tower Crossing Apartments in the 4400 block of South 109th East Avenue. They also found a steak knife, pepper spray, woman's panties, a wig, unused condoms and pornographic material in the attic.

The woman who lived in the first apartment told officers her personal items had been disappearing for more than a year.

Police said there were only two access points to the attic; one was in the victim's apartment and the other was in Perez's.

In addition, police said a hole had been cut into a firewall to allow access to the neighbor's apartment.

Police said Perez admitted to cutting several holes in his neighbor's ceiling and also entering her apartment and stealing underwear. Police booked him into the Tulsa County jail on several complaints of burglary and peeping tom.

Perez is being held without bond at the request of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
