Man arrested after hidden camera incident

Facing court

A 22-year-old Acton man will appear before the ACT Magistrates Court today (Wednesday, 1 July 2020), following the discovery of a camera in a shower cubicle at a Canberra university.

Police will allege the man placed the camera in the cubicle in a unisex bathroom yesterday (30 June). It was discovered a few minutes later by a student, and police were notified.

Police attended and examined CCTV footage from the university, and a short time later arrested the man.

The man is scheduled to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court this morning charged with an invasion of privacy by capturing visual data.
