Police have arrested a 29-year-old Miami Gardens man suspected of peeping through the windows of a family’s home and filming a girl through a window.
Phil Henry Graham, who police say was caught on private surveillance footage, is accused of using his cellphone camera to spy on a 12-year-old girl inside the home, located in the 1300 block of Northwest 198th Street.
Police say Graham visited the property twice to peep inside. Surveillance footage shared by police shows a bearded man, presumed by authorities to be Graham, climbing over a fence surrounding the home and filming through the home’s bedroom and bathroom windows. Children were inside those rooms at the time.
WSVN 7 News reported Friday that Graham had filmed the young girl bathing on Sept. 9.

Miami Gardens police said they received information on Sept. 20 that the suspect was caught on a surveillance camera trespassing and filming inside the home on Sept. 19.
On Sept. 21, police officers canvassed the neighborhood and discovered “multiple similar cases committed by Mr. Graham,” Miami Gardens police said in a media release.
Graham was arrested and charged with six counts of burglary, five counts of trespassing, five counts of voyeurism and one count of grand theft. He was booked on Friday into the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center, and his bond was set at $41,500.
Graham has previously been arrested in Miami-Dade County for misdemeanor trespassing in 2009, felony burglary in 2010 and resisting an officer without violence in 2013. Graham’s charges were dropped in all three cases.
