Man Accused of Recording Boys in Public Restrooms Fled to Mexico


HUNTERSVILLE, N.C.- Police told Channel 9 the man accused of peeping in the Huntersville area has fled the country.

Huntersville police said U.S. Customs and Border Protection notified them that Oscar Nolasco-Hernandez fled the country to Mexico City.

Officials said Nolasco-Hernandez is charged with 15 counts of felony secret peeping after using the camera on his phone to record 15 boys in bathrooms. One of the victims was as young as 10 years old.

According to police, a boy was inside the bathroom at the Target on Sam Furr Road when Nolasco-Hernandez stuck his cellphone under the stall door and recorded him. When the boy noticed the camera, he told his mother.

That's when police said they started looking into it.

Investigators said they took out a warrant to search Nolasco-Hernandez's phone after tracking him down from footage of him leaving the store and the car he was driving.

According to police, they found 15 videos of boys on his phone that they believe he recorded in public bathrooms. 

Officers were able to confirm two of the videos were taken in the Target, but the locations of the other videos have not been released.
