Charleston man arrested in ‘voyeur’ incident, charged in other cases

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) – The Charleston Police Department says it has arrested a suspect in connection with a “voyeur” incident in downtown Charleston and charged a suspect in another incident in West Ashley.

Police said Juan Angel Borrero-Bristol, 43, of Charleston, was charged with two counts of voyeurism, first-degree burglary and two counts of first-degree assault with intent to commit a sexual offense.

The charges stem from an incident on July 6, when at approximately 2:40 a.m. the suspect, now identified as Borrero-Bristol, was spotted on the porch of a home on Radcliffe Street looking through a window at the two victims.

Police said Juan Angel Borrero-Bristol, 43, of Charleston, was charged with two counts of voyeurism, first-degree burglary and two counts of first-degree assault with intent to commit a sexual offense.

While detectives were investigating, they were notified of a break-in and sexual assault that occurred a little over an hour later around 4 a.m. on West Ashley, where the suspect’s description matched the description of the first incident. Officers responded to a report of an unknown male entering an apartment on Ashley Crossing Drive and sexually assaulting two victims.

The investigation also linked Borrero-Bristol to an attempted burglary on Saint Philip Street in 2023 and he was also charged in connection with that incident.

Metropolitan Police Chief Chito Walker thanked the public for their help.

“These cases were resolved through a collaborative effort by our community, the media, and our officers and detectives who worked around the clock on these investigations,” Walker said. “We continue to recognize that community vigilance and involvement protect the well-being of our city.”

Borrero-Bristol remains in the Al Cannon Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.
