Gwinnett police seek victims and suspect in unlawful bathroom recording at local park

 (Dacula, Georgia) Gwinnett County Police Department is seeking a father and son who are believed to be victims as well as the suspect in an incident that reportedly took place at about 9 p.m. on Monday, May 13, at Rabbit Hill Park in the Dacula area of the County. An officer assigned to the East Precinct (which also serves the Loganville area of Gwinnett) took a police report about the incident.

Three boys say they saw a man place his cell phone under a stall and record the occupants of the stall next to him. The boys were waiting in line to use the bathroom. The suspect is described as a “heavy set white male, black hair with a big bald spot, a black goatee, pink shorts, and a black ‘Mountain View’ baseball t-shirt.”  After taking the report, the officer patrolled the park but did not see anyone matching the description.

The case has been assigned to the Special Victims Unit (SVU).  A SVU supervisor visited the park yesterday (05/14) afternoon to see if there were any cameras in the general vicinity that could be of use to this case but found none. The lead detective subsequently made contact with the parents of the three witnesses and, based on the interviews, believe that the occupants of the adjacent stall who were allegedly the victims were a father and son. The son possibly may play on a youth baseball team that played at the park on the evening of May 13. GCPD are eager to identify the father and son as well as the suspect in this case.

“The safety of those who visit Gwinnett County Parks are of high interest to the Gwinnett County Police Department,” Cpl. Michele Pihera, public information officer with GCPD said in a press release. “Officers assigned to the East Precinct have increased their patrols to Rabbit Hill Park, and the lead detective is working hard to investigate this incident.”

If anyone has any information to share in this case, they are asked to contact GCPD detectives at 770-513-5300.  To remain anonymous, tipsters should contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or visit  Crime Stoppers tipsters can receive a cash reward for information leading to an arrest and indictment in this case.  Case Number:  19-043341
