Police: Man recorded women in Elmhurst hospital bathroom
A man accused of using a cellphone to record women using a washroom at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital faces a felony charge of unlawful videotaping, authorities said Saturday.
Salvador Perez, 49, of the 2500 block of Sonia Avenue, Franklin Park, on Friday positioned his cellphone under the sink of a unisex bathroom at the hospital so it would record the toilet area, officials said.
A woman using the bathroom later in the day discovered the phone when it fell from beneath the sink and alerted authorities, according to police.
Perez appeared Saturday morning before DuPage County Judge Michael Wolfe, who set bond at $150,000; Perez must post $15,000 to be released from jail while his case is pending. If released before his next court appearance in June, Perez will be required to wear a GPS monitoring device, authorities said.
"The allegations against Mr. Perez are very disturbing," DuPage County State's Attorney Robert Berlin said in a statement. "Invading another person's privacy in such a manner will not be tolerated and will be met with the full force of the law."
