On July 10, police responded to a burglary-in-progress call at a home in Dothan, Alabama, according to authorities.

Dothan Police Lt. Scott Owens told The Dohan Eagle, “The victim alleged that a male intruder came in and that she and the suspect fought physically. She received minor injuries for which she received treatment at a local hospital.”

During the investigation, officials learned John Thomas Uda, 27, broke into the victim’s home to sexually assault her.

Authorities also learned Uda broke into the same residence on July 1 and stole a game console, which he later sold.

On July 11, Uda was arrested and a search warrant of his home allowed investigators to find over 400 undergarments, mostly underwear and bras.

The Dothan Eagle reported Uda was confronted by police in 2019 for stealing undergarments from the laundry room at his apartment complex.

On July 11, police said they also seized all of his personal electronic devices. An analysis gave investigators photos, which included over 50 pictures of two acquaintances from the neck down, photos of one victim’s debit cards and her son’s Social Security card.

When presented with this evidence, Uda admitted to burglarizing another victim’s house on March 29, police said and the Eagle reported.

Officials said Uda was previously at the same woman’s house as he tried to watch her undress through the window.

Uda was charged with 50 counts of voyeurism, first-degree burglary, two counts of third-degree burglary, aggravated criminal surveillance, and first-degree attempted rape and two counts of illegal possession of a credit/debit card, police said.

He was booked into jail and is being held on a $1 million bond, officials said.
