A 24-year-old man was arrested Tuesday after a hidden cell phone was found recording video inside a Chapman University bathroom, police said.
A female employee told campus public safety officials at 1 a.m. Tuesday she had seen a cell phone while inside a unisex single-person restroom in the Leatherby Libraries, said Lt. Fred Lopez of the Orange Police Department. The bathroom is located on the first floor Rotunda Commons.
The phone was placed in a pouch and taped to a trash can, with the camera lens peeking over the edge of the receptacle.
Campus police responded and detained Jihwhoo Ahn of Fullerton at the school and called the Orange Police Department. He was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor invasion of privacy. Police did not specify what led them to Ahn in the first place.
Lopez did not know how many victims had been recorded or how long the phone had been in the restroom.
During an interview with investigators, Ahn admitted to recording people inside the restroom, Lopez said. Ahn, a college student, is not a student or affiliated with the university.
