A 31-year-old northwest suburban man set up a video camera inside a bathroom to illegally tape a teenage girl, according to police who arrested him Thursday.
Michael M. Nieves of the 500 block of Birch Street in Woodstock was charged with one count of unlawful videotaping, a Class 3 felony, after being arrested at his workplace in Spring Grove on Thursday, according to Woodstock police.
About 11 a.m. Thursday, the victim, a girl under the age of 17, called police after finding the camera in the bathroom, police said.
Police quickly identified Nieves as a suspect, questioned and arrested him.
