A Franklin Park man has been indicted on charges he used a cellphone camera to videotape a woman in a restroom at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital.

Salvador Perez, 49, of the 2500 block of Sonia Avenue, was arrested in May and formally indicted this week on a felony charge of unlawful videotaping.

Police said Perez went to the hospital May 7 and hid a cellphone camera under the sink in a unisex restroom to record people using the toilet.

A woman alerted authorities after the camera fell from the sink while she was using the bathroom later that day, authorities said.

Perez was released from jail on a $15,000 bond May 19 and is scheduled to appear Monday in front of DuPage County Judge George Bakalis.

The defendant has been placed on GPS monitoring and ordered to have no contact with minors. He also is barred from entering Elmhurst Memorial Hospital, 1200 S. York Road, and any schools or day-care centers, court records show.
