Peeping Tom with camera in toilet nabbed

SINGAPORE: A 21-year-old man was arrested after a pinhole camera was found in a toilet in Nanyang Technological University (NTU) earlier this month.

The police said in a statement yesterday that the man was arrested for his suspected involvement in a public nuisance case.

A 58-year-old woman made a police report on March 1 when she came across the pinhole camera in a handicapped toilet at the Humani­ties & Social Sciences building.

The camera was supposedly hidden inside a plastic hook that was mounted on the side of the door facing the toilet bowl.

She noticed that the hook, which had an air freshener pack hanging on it, was placed in a relatively low position, just above the air vents on the door and at the same level as the toilet bowl.

Officer from the Jurong Police Division conducted extensive probes and enquiries before they established the man’s identity, the statement said.

Preliminary investigations re­­vealed that the man is involved in other similar cases. — The Straits Times/Asia News Network
