ATLANTA — Georgia State University police told Channel 2 Action News they have arrested a man accused of taking pictures and video of people in both the men’s and women’s restrooms at the university.

Donny R. Techiera was taken into custody Wednesday shortly after investigators named him as the suspect. He is facing two counts of felony unlawful surveillance and a single count of public indecency.

“Based on the access that he has and his knowledge of the buildings, when we track him on camera, we definitely think he’s a student,” said Maj. Anthony Coleman, with Georgia State University police.

Some students said someone was recording them in the restrooms of the Library North and the Student Center West.

“We were able to track the gentleman, get a good picture of him because we caught him coming out of the restroom, from one restroom, going into another restroom right after the incident happened,” Coleman said.

All of that led police to put out a warning for students to be on the lookout.

“I was just kind of distraught,” one student said.

Police said they were able to identify the man accused in the crime as a student. They then took him into custody.
