Police arrested a Filipino man for alleged loitering after a surveillance camera caught him peeking under cubicle doors in the ladies’ room of a shopping mall in Quarry Bay on Hong Kong Island.
The suspect, a 43-year-old man said to be a bartender, was arrested by police officers on Tuesday morning, Sing Pao reported.
Surveillance camera footage being circulated on social media on Sunday showed a woman entering the ladies’ room in Manly Plaza on King’s Road, after which a man suddenly appeared and stopped the door from closing. The man then left, but returned a few seconds later and followed the woman. Inside the ladies’ room, he was seen squatting, appearing to peek under toilet cubicle doors.
After half a minute, the man left, just before a woman emerged from the toilet cubicle.
Police officers arrested the suspect on Westland Road near Taikoo Place for alleged loitering. It is understood that the suspect works in a nearby pub.
