EDMOND — A former restaurant employee remained in jail on a peeping Tom charge Thursday after a patron accused him of watching her go to the bathroom.
Antonio Vasquez, 27, of Oklahoma City, was fired April 26 from Ted's Cafe Escondido, 801 E Danforth Road, after the woman chased him out of the restaurant, a probable cause affidavit shows.
Vasquez was charged Wednesday in Oklahoma County District Court with the crime of peeping Tom, a misdemeanor, records show.
Vasquez was fired following the incident and was arrested by Edmond police a short time later after running into the woods near the restaurant, the affidavit shows.
He told police a woman had asked him to change the paper in the women's restroom, but the restaurant manager told police it is a company policy that men are never allowed in the women's restroom.
A restaurant worker saw Vasquez leaving the women's restroom. After being fired, he left the building, but returned and went into the restroom a second time, where a woman saw him looking down on her from the next stall, police reported.
A shoe print taken from the toilet seat matched the shoe Vasquez was wearing, police said.
