A man is taking photos of people in Auckland through their windows late at night, police have warned.

Police were called to a home in the suburb of Grey Lynn about 11pm yesterday after a man was seen using his phone to film through a window.

They said they had been investigating other similar cases in the suburb.

In one of them, the prowler put his arm through a window.

Detective Senior Sergeant Marcia Murray said people should consider putting security locks on windows and report anything suspicious.
