MARIETTA, Ga. — Police say a metro gas station became a hunting ground for a Peeping Tom. He’s accused of spying on women, and secretly recording them in the bathroom.
The gas station is located at one of the busiest intersections in Marietta. With so much traffic there, police told Channel 2′s Chris Jose that it could’ve happened to anyone.
Police said Charles Hill recorded multiple women with his phone inside the bathroom of the QuikTrip at Lower Roswell Road and South Marietta Parkway in Marietta.
“It makes your head spin that there’s some crazy people out there doing such a thing,” customer Georgiana Lamptey said. “It’s disgusting.”
Hill was arrested last week on Sunday.
Police said Hill walked into the women’s restroom and hid in a stall.
“By closing the door, he was able to step up on top of that toilet and reach over that wall to film,” Chuck McPhilamy with the Marietta Police Department said.

According to Hill’s arrest warrant, he’s accused of secretly recording multiple women for a whole week in March.
“Fortunately, for all of us, one of the females noticed, happened to look up, noticed a phone reaching out on the top and immediately called 911,” McPhilamy said.
Police say the victim not only called 911, she also ran after Hill. Officers eventually found him.
On his arrest warrant, a judge deemed Hill a danger to the community.
Investigators are working to find out if there are more victims.
“I’d feel violated,” Lamptey said. “Violating people’s rights. It’s very sad.”
Investigators said this a reminder to everyone, especially women, to always look around when using a public facility.
