Video footage in the building show Fahy entering a women’s restroom and staying there for 14 minutes. During that time, he is accused of sliding his phone under the stall and taking a picture of a girl as she went to the bathroom.
The victim said the suspect identified himself as a special agent with the U.S. Bureau of Tobacco, Firearms and Alcohol, and said it was a “misunderstanding,” and that he had mistakenly entered the wrong restroom.
Search warrants obtained against Fahy showed his phone had been recently restored to a backup point, something which the UWPD officers said led them to believe he was trying to destroy evidence.
