A male Adelphi University student was arrested last week after he allegedly recorded a female student in a dorm bathroom, Garden City police said.

The female student entered a bathroom at Earle Hall on the Garden City campus on Dec. 5, shortly before 3:30 p.m., police said. The student saw a man enter the same bathroom before he fled in an unknown direction.

After what police described in a news release as a "thorough investigation" they determined Fahad Khan, 20, a resident of the same dorm, had recorded the female student. He was charged with second-degree unlawful surveillance and fourth-degree stalking and was arraigned Saturday at First District Court in Hempstead.

A representative of the university said the school notified police immediately after it learned of the incident and that Khan had been "removed from campus."

"The wellbeing and safety of our students is the university’s top priority and we are providing support and counseling services on campus for anyone in need during this time," Adelphi spokesman Todd Wilson said in an email.

He said the school was fully cooperating with police, but declined to comment further as the investigation continued.

Khan was represented in court by a lawyer from the Legal Aid Society of Nassau County, according to public records. No one from that office immediately returned calls for comment.

Garden City detectives ask any possible victims of a similar incident to call 516-465-4150. All calls will remain anonymous.
