A serial peeping Tom in Rock Hill who was out on bond after a June 9 arrest on a charge of voyeurism has been arrested again, according to police and jail records.

Travis Cousar, 35, was charged with a vehicle break-in Sunday by Rock Hill police, according to jail records and Rock Hill Police Department Officer Paul Myers, a spokesman for the department.

Cousar, a registered sex offender, was transferred to the York County Detention Center Sunday night, where he remains under a $75,000 bond, jail records show.

After Cousar was arrested June 9, he was released on a $35,000 bond, court records show.

In 2016, Cousar was accused of peeping at a woman through her bathroom window as she readied for work with small children in the house. In 2014, he was convicted of peeping at a teenage girl through a window.

Prosecutors have said in court that Cousar “won’t change” despite getting arrested and convicted repeatedly for peeping Tom.

Cousar has a criminal record for property and drug crimes that dates to 1998, State Law Enforcement Division records show.

He has other convictions, including failure to register as a sex offender and harassment.

Cousar was released Dec. 30 from a South Carolina prison after a conviction for peeping Tom in early 2016. He received a two-year sentence and served only eight months because he had jail time credit between the time of arrest and conviction.
