An employee of fast-food Chinese restaurant Hungry Ninja in Valencia was arrested Friday and charged with making pictures of female co-workers undressing in a restroom, authorities said.
Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station deputies arrested the suspect, Diego Ortiz, of Santa Clarita, at the restaurant Friday around 3 p.m. The arrest occurred after a female co-worker discovered a cell phone video camera hidden in the employee's restroom and made a report at the sheriff's station, said Sgt. Gary Parker.
The camera was hidden in a box behind a pinhole, Parker said. Ortiz was released from custody Saturday on notice to appear in court, according to Parker. The owner of Hungry Ninja was not immediately available for comment.
