TCU Security Guard Accused of Taking Photos in Restroom

Campus police say he has been terminated and arrested

According to reports, a campus security guard at Texas Christian University is in custody, accused of taking inappropriate pictures of a student in a restroom stall, campus police say.

 

A student reported she was using the restroom at the university library when she noticed someone point a mobile phone camera at her from an adjacent stall.

 

An investigation by the campus police department identified TCU security guard Alexander Marin as the suspect.  Campus police said Marin was, “identified, terminated and then arrested” and now faces charges for improper photography or visual recording, a state jail felony. Marin has also been issued a criminal trespass warning barring him from campus.

 

According to a statement from Sgt. Kelly Ham, the TCU Police Department "has reason to believe Marin may have done this at other times during the previous two months while at the library."
