UPDATE: Man charged after allegedly taking photos in BCIT women’s washroom

Police are investigating the incident

A 48-year-old Langley man is facing voyeurism and assault charges after allegedly taking photos of women in the washroom at BCIT’s Burnaby campus on Monday afternoon.

In a memo to all staff and students, the technical school said that “an unknown male was observed using a cellphone to capture images in a female washroom” in the NE1 building.

BCIT is taking this incident very seriously and is working closely to support RCMP investigators,” the memo read.

“As a precautionary measure, we have increased security presence and patrols in this building.”

Police say they received reports that a man was being detained by students at BCIT, after the man allegedly used a cellphone to capture images of a woman in a washroom at the campus.

The victim confronted the man, who allegedly pushed her and attempted to flee. He was detained by other students until police arrived and was taken into custody without incident.
