A man accused of breaking into homes while the occupants were inside and allegedly watching women as they slept has been released from custody on the condition he undergoes rehabilitation.
Bradley Peacock will spend the weekend under a 24-hour curfew at his sister's home after he was granted bail in Wagga Local Court on Friday.
The 22-year-old, from Lake Albert, faced court on multiple charges related to break-ins at two homes.
He has yet to enter any pleas.
Police allege the occupants of a home on Grevillea Crescent in Lake Albert were woken by Mr Peacock standing in their bedroom about 7am on Thursday.
He allegedly fled on foot but was tracked down by a police dog and arrested at a nearby house.

It is alleged he broke into another home in the same street during the early hours of November 12.
He was charged with eight offences, including three counts of aggravated break and enter with intent and two counts of stalk or intimidate.
In court on Friday, Mr Peacock's solicitor, Elodie Somerville, sought his release from custody.
Ms Somerville said he had secured a place in the Calvary Drug and Alcohol Centre's residential rehabilitation program and was due to start a 10-day detox from Monday.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Kayla Borchert opposed bail, saying the alleged offences would have caused the residents to be very fearful for their safety.
The court heard he had spent more than two hours in one of the homes.
"These offences demonstrate planning, preparation," Sergeant Borchert said.
Magistrate Miranda Moody granted Mr Peacock bail on the condition he live with his sister until Monday and then remain in the rehabilitation program until it was deemed complete.
He must also not enter the suburb of Lake Albert.
The case returns to court in January.
