A construction worker arrested at the Chinese University of Hong Kong is believed to be linked to 13 cases of theft and voyeurism at the Ma Liu Shui campus. The 35-year-old suspect surnamed Li was nabbed on Monday after two security guards recognized him from CCTV footage of incidents reported over the past six months.
Two pinhole cameras were earlier seized by police at a female toilet in the William MW Mong Engineering Building and in another toilet at a United College student hostel. Goods taken during the series of thefts are valued at about HK$97,000 and include mobile phones and computers, police said. After the suspect's arrest, police found in his possession a university ID card reported lost by a student, a second card used to enter a hostel, and a mobile phone. Police later searched the home of the suspect, where they discovered a photo transmitter, an 8GB memory card, a key for a room at a university hostel and four cards for Facebook games.
Sha Tin assistant divisional commander Mike Chow Kwong-chung yesterday showed the two pinhole cameras as well as the picture transmitter to the media. Chow said they suspect the man installed the cameras in the university toilets, but told CUHK students not to worry because the police have apparently caught the culprit. The suspect was eating in a canteen at the Benjamin Franklin Centre on Monday when he was recognized by two security guards. The man fled and more guards pursued him before he was caught in front of the ParknShop next to the canteen.
A security guard surnamed Law was injured during the chase. He later received treatment at Prince of Wales Hospital. A few pieces of aluminum foil, used by drug abusers, were also found in the suspect's possession. University Student Union president Johnson Yeung Ching-yin said CUHK has enhanced security around the campus by assigning more patrols. "We are quite satisfied with what the university has done. It has done what it can," Yeung said. Sarah, a Year Two student at the university, said it is difficult to catch Peeping Toms around the campus. "If people are intent on doing something, they will find a way to do it no matter how hard the university tries to prevent it," she said. "It's impossible to install CCTVs in every toilet." A mainland student surnamed Li said: "Actually, people at student hostels are not aware of the potential for theft. They usually leave their doors unlocked." Another student said after the recent Peeping Tom cases, girls are now more cautious about going to the toilets.
