A 37-year-old Glenview man has been charged with peering into windows and video recording a woman inside without her consent.

Wheeling police say Shuujin Vanchig, of the 600 block of Quincy Bridge Lane, looked into the windows of several homes on the 1600 block of Pennsbury Court early Sunday and took video of a woman, authorities said.

Cook County Judge Jill Cerone Marisie set bail at $10,000 for Vanchig, who is charged with unauthorized videotaping. The felony is punishable by one to three years in prison. Probation is also available.

A resident called police to report a man looking into windows. Officers arrived to find the defendant looking into the window of another home, police said.

Vanchig admitted to watching and videotaping the woman, police said.

He next appears in court on Sept. 19.
