Cal Locker Room Peeping Tom Suspect Arrested
BERKELEY (BCN) – A man suspected of taking pictures of women in a University of California at Berkeley locker room was arrested Thursday afternoon.
Police arrested Berkeley resident Gregorio Hernandez, 29, for disorderly conduct after he allegedly snuck into a women’s locker room at UC Berkeley on two separate occasions, campus police Lt. Alex Yao said.
Hernandez, who is not affiliated with the university, is accused of entering the locker room at the campus Recreational Sports Facility in the afternoon and evening of Oct. 4 and Oct. 6, police said.
On Oct. 4, a custodian allegedly saw Hernandez in the facility at about 4:30 p.m. with a towel wrapped around his head and chin, Yao said.
Then on Oct. 6, at about 9:20 p.m., Hernandez was reportedly seen again, this time leaving the facility wearing a black wig.
Police said Hernandez was seen using a cell phone to take pictures of women in the locker room during one of the incidents. He fled both times after staff confronted him.
There have been no other reports of unauthorized entry to the facility’s locker room this month, Yao said.
