An Alabama man accused of attempting to rape a woman after forcibly entering her home was found to be in possession of more than 400 pairs of women’s undergarments at his home.

John Uda, 27, was slapped with 50 separate counts of voyeurism, including first-degree burglary, two counts of third-degree burglary, aggravated criminal surveillance, and first-degree attempted rape, as well as two counts of illegal possession of a bank card.

On July 10, police were called to a woman’s home in the 100 block of Blissett Drive after reports of a possible home invasion, according to the Dothan Eagle. Police later concluded Uda had entered the residence with the intention of sexually assaulting the woman. 

“The victim alleged that a male intruder came in and that she and the suspect fought physically,” Dothan Police Lt. Scott Owens said. “She received minor injuries for which she received treatment at a local hospital.”

Following Uda’s arrest on July 11, law enforcement discovered the massive trove of women’s underwear and bras, while executing a search warrant at his apartment. Officials suspect he obtained the massive collection by raiding his building’s laundry room. 

He’d previously been approached by authorities for swiping underwear from the same property in 2019, police said. 

Authorities also seized dozens of suspicious photos he’s alleged to have taken, including images from the neck down of female acquaintances. He was also found to be in possession of images of a woman’s debit card, as well as her son’s Social Security card, the Dothan Eagle reported.

Uda's electronic devices and cell phone were also taken by detectives.

Under questioning, Uda confessed to breaking into a second individual’s home on March 29. Police accused him of previously lurking outside the woman’s window in order to watch her undress.

If we can keep [him] in jail the public will definitely be better for it,” Owens added, the Birmingham News reported

Uda is being held on a $995,000 bond.
