      Horry County police arrested a man they say watched five young men showering at an area campground.

      Blake Randall Darby, 26, was arrested and charged with five counts of Peeping Tom, Eavesdropping or Peeping and one count of Criminal Solicitation of a Minor.

      Darby was arrested Thursday after security at Ocean Lakes Campground called police about multiple complaints about a peeping Tom, according to a report.

      The victims told officers that Darby had peeped in on them while they were showering, and that Darby also attempted to video record one of the victim's with a cell phone, according to police.

      Darby was arrested after all the victims positively identified him as the suspect, police added.

      Darby denied all allegations, according to the report.

      Darby's phone was seized for evidence and he was taken to J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
