Eureka, MO (KSDK) - A 19-year-old clerk at Six Flags St. Louis was arrested for peeping, the Eureka Police Chief Michael Wiegand confirms.
The male clerk was caught spying on two 13-year-old girls as they were changing for a ride at Hurricane Harbor on Wednesday afternoon.

There is also surveillance video that shows the clerk peeking through a gap in the wall to see the girls.
The suspect was questioned and released pending notification warrants. He faces charges of invasion of privacy.
