Woman using McDonald’s washroom catches man recording her

Saanich #yyj

  • Jun. 28, 2011 2:00 p.m.

A man was arrested for voyeurism Friday night when a woman spotted an electronic device being held above her while she occupied a stall in the washroom of a Saanich McDonald’s restaurant.

Around 9 p.m., June 24, a 45-year-old Langford woman saw the top of a man’s head above the stall and his arm outstretched above her.

Her husband along with the the manager of the Saanich Road restaurant, located across from Uptown, confronted the suspected voyeur, keeping him without incident until a Saanich police officer arrived. A cell phone and iPod were seized from the man.

“This appears to be a one-off at that point of time,” Sgt. Dean Jantzen said, adding that it’s not believed the man had been waiting for women to enter the washroom.

A 26-year-old Saanich man now faces one count of voyeurism.
