A man was arrested at UC-Berkeley last weekend for allegedly videotaping another man in a restroom stall. Police are seeking additional victims.

University police arrested Richard C. Anderson, 71, Sunday, September 7 on suspicion of invasion of privacy and vandalism. It’s not clear if the district attorney’s office has formally charged him.

The incident occurred at about 4:50 p.m. in the lower level of the Martin Luther King, Jr. student union building.

The victim, 49, had entered a restroom stall when he saw someone reaching under the stall with a smartphone. The victim yelled, left the restroom, and told a building employee, who called police, according to the agency.

Responding officers saw Anderson in the restroom with a smartphone and a drill, which he’d allegedly used to make a hole in the stall wall.

County records indicate Anderson’s not in custody. His contact information and court details couldn’t immediately be located.

Police are asking anyone who used the first floor men’s restroom in the MLK building Sunday or who has any information about the incident to immediately contact police detective Sergeant Andrew Tucker at (510) 664-9687 or

Tucker and other police didn’t respond to the Bay Area Reporter’s calls today (Wednesday, September 9).
