The arrest came after the Sheriff's Department posted a surveillance video on its website showing a man entering a women's restroom.

Authorities identified the suspect as Moses Solis. Officers from the Moreno Valley Police Department and Rialto Police Department arrested him at his home in Rialto on Monday.
