MARYLAND
School worker charged with peeping

A Montgomery County middle school service worker was arrested on peeping Tom charges after being accused of using a staff window to watch girls changing their clothes in a locker room, police said Friday.

Josh Andrew Greenberg, 28, of Snyder Mill Court in Gaithersburg has been placed on administrative leave and was released from jail pending further court action, officials said.

On Thursday, police were called to Herbert Hoover Middle School in the Rockville area, where two students had told officials of previous peeping Tom incidents — one the day before, the other about a month earlier, police said.

The window that Greenberg allegedly looked through has blinds on it, police said.
