Johnny Nguyen of StantonA man arrested for videotaping another man in a Cypress College bathroom stall has admitted to committing the same crime 15 times, and police are looking for more victims.

Authorities say the victim of the Tuesday taping entered a stall just after 3 p.m. and saw a hand come underneath the partition and point a cellphone camera at him in while he remained undressed.

Cypress Police Officer Paulo Morales said the victim then shouted at 19-year-old Johnny Nguyen of Stanton, left his own stall and detained Nguyen until authorities arrived.

“Information found on the camera indicates he videotaped at least two other victims on the same day,” Morales said.

Once detained, Nguyen admitted to committing the same crime 15 other times in the last 12 months, all within various men’s restrooms at Cypress College. 

Authorities arrested Nguyen for a single misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. He was booked at the Cypress city jail and released with a citation.

Morales says the suspect faces up to a year in jail. He is due back in court for arraignment May 2.

The Cypress Police Department is asking anyone who has information on this incident or believes they are a victim to contact detectives at (714) 229-6631.
