A tech CEO in Palo Alto was arrested on Monday in Mountain View for allegedly peeping into a woman's restroom stall, the Mountain View Police Department said.
Police dispatchers got the call around 11:40 a.m. from a woman who said she had been in the bathroom at Panera restaurant on El Monte Avenue when she saw a man stick his head underneath the stall to look at her, according to a press release. The woman screamed and the man ran out of the restroom and out into the street.
However, the woman gave chase on foot and confronted him near El Camino Real, police said. She attempted to take a picture of the man but he grabbed her phone and pushed her to the ground.
According to police, he then took off running toward Marich Way, took off his shirt and jumped a fence, and then returned to Panera, where he was tackled by a group of bystanders.
The victim identified the 35-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of robbery and peeping.
Detectives are concerned that there may be more victims that have not come forward. If you or anyone you know may be a victim of the alleged peeper, contact Detective Josh Gould at email@example.com. Police would also like to talk to anyone who witnessed the event.
