An Englewood man has been charged with window peeping on three women in their Boystown apartment on Thursday morning, police said.

Deonte Jackson, 26, was arrested around 7:30 a.m. after the women told police they saw him looking into their home from their back porch on the 800 block of West Roscoe.

Police allegedly found a knife in Jackson’s possession during a search.

Prosecutors charged him with misdemeanor window peeping and misdemeanor possession of a deadly weapon. He is due back in court on Oct. 7.

In August 2017, Jackson was charged with threatening two men and one of their teenage sons with a knife on the 3500 block of North Halsted in Boystown. The victims told police that Jackson became verbally aggressive toward them outside a late-night taco joint. Jackson allegedly followed the three to a nearby parking lot while clutching a knife near his waistband and asking, “Do you have a problem?” according to prosecutors.

Jackson eventually pleaded guilty to one count of possessing a deadly weapon in exchange for an eight-day jail term. Three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon were dropped in the plea deal.

Chicago police records show that Jackson has been arrested five times in the Boystown area over the past two years. Charges have included theft, criminal trespass to residence, assault and retail theft. The outcomes of those cases were not immediately available.
