OAKLAND (AP) —

Authorities say a janitor who worked in an Oakland office building is facing numerous charges for allegedly hiding a phone in a restroom to secretly record women.

The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office said Thursday 46-year-old Moises Fuentes has been charged with 22 misdemeanor counts of invading the privacy of a dressing room and one count of indecent exposure.

Police investigators say Fuentes filmed 13 women using a restroom at various times in February, March and April.

The Oakland Tribune reports the secretive video recording was uncovered in April, when a woman using the restroom noticed the phone and contacted police.

Fuentes was arrested July 29 after officers searched his home in Richmond.

A call to his attorney was not immediately returned Thursday.
