An employee of Pennsylvania’s DeSales University was topless, pumping breast milk in her office when she heard a noise and glanced up: There was a small hole in a ceiling tile and it looked like it was concealing a camera lens.
The woman said she threw her shirt back on and walked out, bumping into colleague John Bednarik II, who was coming out of an adjacent office, according to a complaint from the Upper Saucon Township Police Department.
Police named Bednarik, 33, as the electronic Peeping Tom and charged him with one count of misdemeanor invasion of privacy for allegedly setting up the video camera during the May 29 incident. He did so “to allow viewing and recording of (the co-worker) while partially nude, for the purpose of his own sexual arousal and gratification,” according to the complaint.
Bednarik allegedly ‘fessed up to the pervy peeping and ownership of the video camera during a police interview, the complaint said. The video showed the victim “partially nude, utilizing a breast pump” and “was from the vantage point directly above her desk,” the complaint continued.
Bednarik served as the school’s director of campus environment and was fired last week following the alleged voyeuristic episode, university spokesman Tom McNamara said.
The woman, who was not named in the complaint, told police she worries about her safety because she lives in the same neighborhood as Bednarik, who lists himself as married on Facebook.
As a condition of the bail, he was ordered to stay away from her, said The Express-Times newspaper.
