A peeping Tom who repeatedly spied on women in a Glen Burnie Panera Bread bathroom stall was arrested Tuesday afternoon, police said.
In the first incident on March 5, a 19-year-old woman reported seeing a man’s hand reach under the partition and attempt to videotape her with a cell phone, according to a press release from Anne Arundel County Police.
At the same Panera Bread three weeks later, a female customer reported seeing a man leaving the women’s restroom, laughing. Surveillance tapes showed the suspect to be the same man in the March 5 incident, police said.
On Tuesday morning, an employee reported seeing the suspect trying to enter the women’s restroom. The suspect fled, but employees followed him to his car and noted his license tag, police said.
Police identified the suspect as 50-year-old Michael Nicholas Villa, who police said was a registered sex offender with no fixed address.
Villa was arrested at a shopping center the same day. He now faces multiple charges of private place prurient intent.
