Original Story (Posted July 1, 2019):
HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. – Huntersville Police are searching for a suspected bathroom peeper. He’s accused of recording more than a dozen boys in our area. Investigators say many of the victims may not even know they were recorded.
A 10-year-old boy tells police a man recorded him with a cell phone while he was using the bathroom in Target on Sam Furr Road. It happened June 4th.
Police used surveillance video to identify the suspect as Oscar Nolasco-Hernandez. Investigators say they seized his phone when he tried to return to the store a few days later.
On it, they found videos showing 15 male victims inside public bathrooms.
Police were able to identify a 13-year-old victim also at the Target, but the rest of the victims and the locations where the rest of the videos were shot is unknown.
Police say when they interviewed Nolasco-Hernandez in June, they didn’t have enough evidence to charge him.
Now they can’t find him.
Huntersville Police say this type of crime is rare but they urge parents to warn their children.
Nolasco-Hernandez may be driving a dark blue Lexas GS sedan. It has South Carolina plate QXB 698.
A Target company spokesperson released a statement saying:
“At Target, we have no tolerance for inappropriate behavior or guest
misconduct in our stores. We also take a multi-layered approach to
guest safety that includes partnerships with local law enforcement,
technology and team member training. Last month, a guest in our
Huntersville store told our security team about a man inappropriately
taking photos in the store. We immediately worked with the guest to
contact the Huntersville Police Department and are continuing to
support the police’s investigation, including working closely with the
detective to provide videos, photos and information about the suspect
to help with their investigation.”
