Alfred Baldwin: He Had a Ringside Seat to the Watergate Break-In

From a New York Times obit by Katharine Q. Seelye headlined “Alfred Baldwin, Lookout for Watergate Burglars, Dies at 83”:

Alfred C. Baldwin III had a ringside seat to the hapless Watergate break-in on June 17, 1972. He was the lookout, watching from a perch across the street with a mission to warn his burglary compadres inside the Watergate complex if law enforcement was approaching.

When he finally did see the police swoop in, he was too late to warn the burglars. He fled from his lookout post but was later picked up by the F.B.I.
