SAN JOSE — William Archie Fain, the convicted murderer and rapist whose parole stirred a public outcry, was arrested by two citizens after he was spotted peeping into a bedroom window, police said today.
Sgt. Bob Burroughs said one man reported spotting Fain, 40, peering into a neighbor's window Tuesday night. The man called the neighbor, and the pair held Fain until police arrived.
Fain, who lives in nearby Campbell and works as a roofer, was booked for investigation of peeping and prowling, Burroughs said.
Fain spent nearly 16 years in prison for the June, 1967, murder of a high school student and the rape of three young women near the Stanislaus County community of Oakdale.
