Seattle Police are investigating a possible case of a peeping drone after a woman reported spotting an unmanned craft with a camera hovering outside her high-rise apartment window, police said today.

Lisa Pleiss said she was getting dressed Sunday morning when she spotted the drone buzzing about a block away from her living room window on the 26th floor. The drone then flew down toward the street and Pleiss said she quickly lowered her blinds and called her building’s concierge.

“It was surreal. Initially I was kind of like, ‘Wow, what is that thing?’” Pleiss told ABC News today. “I stared at it for about thirty seconds and once I registered the cameras I felt very vulnerable.”

Pleiss said she managed to snap a photo of the drone.
