The student allegedly hid in the restroom stall and secretly took 32 videos and photos of female students on his cellphone.

An arrest warrant was issued by the court as there was “a risk of destroying evidence,” and the student was arrested on July 7. He was allegedly hiding in the restroom at the time of his arrest.
