A 31-year-old Brooklyn, N.Y., man is accused of standing on a toilet in the women’s restroom at the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem to peer into adjoining stalls.
Jose Luis Carrera-Gutierrez was caught on camera Monday night going into the women’s restroom off the casino floor and staying in there for about an hour, records say.
Security personnel didn’t realize what was happening until a woman in the restroom saw Carrera-Gutierrez standing on a toilet to leer over the wall, records say. Carrera-Gutierrez was looking at a woman in the adjoining stall, records say. The witness confronted Carrera-Gutierrez and would not let him leave until security arrived.
During a police interview, Carrera-Gutierrez admitted to entering the ladies’ restroom, but said he went in by accident and only stayed about 20 minutes. According to records, about 60 women went in and out of the restroom while Carrera-Gutierrez was inside.
Police also obtained a search warrant for Carrera-Gutierrez’s cell phone. The results of the search were not documented in court records. Carrera-Gutierrez is charged with disorderly conduct and was sent to Northampton County Prison in lieu of $3,000 bail.
