MAN ACCUSED OF BREAKING INTO HOMES, WATCHING WOMEN SLEEP BACK BEHIND BARS

A man is behind bars in Tuscaloosa for yet another disturbing crime against young women.

It’s been almost four months since this particular suspect’s last alleged offense.

Jim McCoy was arrested back in August for breaking into homes near the University of Alabama and hovering over young women as they slept.

He allegedly did steal from these women, but there were no reports of him touching or physically harming them.

It’s unclear when McCoy posted his bond from those offenses, but now he’s been arrested again for similar disturbing behavior.

Court documents show McCoy is accused of following a young women on the Riverwalk near Manderson Landing back on the December 1, 2019.

The woman reported the behavior to authorities and McCoy was arrested for trespassing.

Other women who may have become targets are living easier knowing McCoy is back behind bars.

The Tuscaloosa County District Attorney’s Office file a motion to revoke McCoy’s bond. Judge Al May has ordered that McCoy be held in the Tuscaloosa County Jail on no bond.
