While in the washroom, police say a woman saw the man reaching under the stall with a cellphone to record her.

The woman ran from the bathroom and then alerted a passerby. Together, police say, they confronted the accused as he left the washroom, but the man left shortly afterwards, and campus security and Kingston police were called.
