Police: Peeping Toms fall through bathroom ceiling



DULUTH, Ga. - Two men fell through a restroom ceiling as they tried to spy on women, Gwinnett County police said.

The alleged incident took place Sunday night at the Venture Value Cinema in Duluth.

According to arrest warrants, the manager said he thinks the men went up through the men's restroom, crawled over to the women's and then fell through landing directly inside the stalls. An officer wrote that the men were “invading the privacy” of various customers.

A theater employee allowed Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh inside to see the aftermath of the crash landing. The employee believes the men landed in the stalls.

The suspects, 26-year-old Eduard Petrovich Kovynev and 27-year-old Eduard Alexander Kovynev, are both charged with peeping Tom and criminal damage to property. They have since bonded out of jail.

Kavanaugh tracked down one of the suspects at his Suwanee home, but he did not want to comment.
