William Velasco, 25, who lives in San Dimas, allegedly stalked the 21-year-old student for several days and broke into her apartment, stealing underwear, according to the Glendora Police Department.

Glendora Police Chief Rob Castro was scheduled to hold a news conference Friday at police headquarters to elaborate on the new investigation.

The camera at Starbucks was disguised as a plastic coat hook and was affixed to a wall directly across from a toilet, officials said. A Starbucks employee discovered the device and called police, they said.

Detectives confiscated Velasco's laptop and said they found video of at least 45 female victims, according to police.
