Starbucks More victims were being sought Friday in connection with the case of a man accused of hiding a camera in the women's restroom of a Glendora Starbucks.

William Velasco, 25, of San Dimas, was arrested and is also under investigation in a case involving the stalking of a female college student and residential burglary, police said.

He 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 to elaborate on the investigation.

The camera at the 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.
