Eye (v)

1. Did you notice him eyeing her from across the room?
2. He eyed the crowd to see if he recognized anyone.
3. The security guard was eyeing a suspicious teenager when another one shoplifted a CD and ran out of the store.
4. The competitors eyed each other closely to see if anyone was nervous.
5. The lions eyed their prey for hours waiting and planning their attack.

Eyeing someone or something means looking at someone/something closely in order to observe or to examine.
