A Franklin Park man has been charged with leaving his cellphone behind to videotape women using a bathroom at Elmhurst Hospital, DuPage County officials said today.
Salvador Perez, 49, was ordered held in lieu of $150,000 bail and charged with unlawful videotaping, a felony, according to DuPage County State's Attorney Robert B. Berlin.
Prosecutors said that on Friday, Perez set up his cell phone under the sink of a uni-sex bathroom at the hospital to record people using the toilet, prosecutors said.
After Perez, of the 2500 block of Sonia Avenue in the west suburb, activated the phone's video recorder, he left the phone behind. Later, a woman who was using the bathroom, discovered the phone after it fell beneath the sink, prosecutors said.
After finding the phone, the woman alerted authorities who tracked down Perez who was subsequently charged.
"The allegations against Mr. Perez Are very disturbing," Berlin said.
Perez's next court appearance is scheduled for June in front of Judge George Bakalis. As an additional condition of bond, Perez will be required to wear a GPS monitoring device should he post bond, Berlin said.
