    A maintenance man was caught committing a lewd act in a woman's bedroom while she was gone, according to investigators.

    A woman living in Pacific Beach had a hunch that something wasn't right when she got home from work -- she then suspected that someone was coming into her apartment and using her computer when she wasn't there.

    So she set up a surveillance system inside her unit at Casa del Sur Apartments and quickly figured out what was going on. And it was shocking.

    Her maintenance man, who had a master key that opens every apartment, was sneaking into her place and watching porn on her computer.

    "On the Internet history of visited sites she noticed pornography sites visited," San Diego Deputy District Attorney James Teh said.

    But not only was he watching, he was enjoying -- the brazen pervert was calling sex lines and masturbating.

    Police arrested Joshua Kittle, 38, on March 9. He pleaded guilty April 28 to residential burglary charges and accessing the victim's computer without permission. On Wednesday, he was sentenced to a year in the county jail with credit for time served. Kittle was also ordered three years probation.

    Others at Casa del Sur were surprised that their handyman turned out to be so hands on.

    "He's always friendly, I see him out and about and he seems like a nice guy," said resident Allison Freeman of Kittle.
