Man Arrested For Spying On Girl In School Restroom

COVINA  (AP) — Police have arrested a man for spying on a little girl in a Southern California school bathroom stall.

Investigators say the 31-year-old Covina man was crawling on his hands and knees Friday to peek inside the bathroom stall at Las Palmas Middle School in Covina. Lt. Dave Povero says another girl walked into the bathroom, startling the man, and he fled on a bicycle.

Police say the man was arrested Tuesday and he told investigators his name was Cristian Estrada Diaz, but fingerprints identified him as Juan Hernandez. The Pasadena Star-News says he has been booked for investigation of making contact with a minor with the intent of a sexual act.
