The National University of Singapore (NUS) student who allegedly filmed a female hallmate in the shower last Saturday changed his clothes immediately to avoid being identified, said the police.
The latest alleged culprit in a string of Peeping Tom cases reported at local universities in the past month, Joel Rasis Ismail, 26, was charged in court yesterday with one count of criminal trespass and one count of insulting the modesty of a 23-year-old woman.
According to charge sheets, the Singaporean allegedly trespassed into a female bathroom at Kuok Foundation House, a building in NUS' Raffles Hall, on May 11 at about 6.30am.
He is said to have then used his mobile phone to record a video of the victim while she was in the shower.
The police were alerted at about 8.10am and said in a statement yesterday that a suspect was arrested that day by officers from the Clementi Police Division.
Follow-up investigations and closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage helped to identify the suspect. His laptops, mobile phones and other storage devices were seized.
