A Queens man was arrested Saturday after allegedly hiding a cellphone in the bathroom of a Great Neck business and recording women without their knowledge, Nassau County police said.
Daniel Perez, 20, of Jamaica, was charged with three counts of second-degree unlawful surveillance, police said in a news release.
On Jan. 30, Perez went to the Wego Chemical Building at 239 Great Neck Rd. in Great Neck and hid a cellphone in the women’s bathroom, police said.
A female victim later found the phone in the bathroom, played back the recording and saw Perez recording himself as he was hiding the phone, police said. She called the police.
Two other female victims were also found to have been recorded by the phone, police said.
Third Squad Detectives located Perez on Saturday at his residence and arrested him, police said.
At his arraignment Sunday at First District Court in Hempstead, he was conditionally released to probation and a temporary order of protection was issued, according to online court records. He was represented by the Legal Aid Society of Nassau County.
