A 19-year-old man man has been arrested for videotaping fellow patrons of a Cypress College bathroom. He later confessed to committing the same crime up to 15 times in various Cypress College men’s restrooms.

Authorities say the victim of the Tuesday taping entered a stall just after 3 p.m. and saw a hand come underneath the partition and point a cellphone camera at him in while he remained undressed.

Cypress Police Officer Paulo Morales said the victim then shouted at 19-year-old Johnny Nguyen of Stanton, left his own stall and detained Nguyen until authorities arrived.

“Information found on the camera indicates he videotaped at least two other victims on the same day,” Morales said. LA Times, 12 Mar 2012.

Nguyen was charged with one misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. He faces up to a year in jail. If you believe you have been a victim, please call the Cypress Police Department at 714-229-6631.


  1. I saw this on the personal injury website, so it got me wondering. Is the victim in something like this able to sue this guy for some kind of personal injury?

    • Hello Anthony,

      Good question. These types of issues are sometimes connected to are larger problem. For example, if the school knew about the problem and failed to take reasonable steps to stop it there may be some liability. In similar situations, it the public awareness of an event like this does cause other victims to come forward and help to bring the perpetrator(s) to justice.

      Many of the articles on our site are not directly related to a personal injury situation, but we hope the general awareness of issue and our ability to help if needed will be a benefit to those reading.
