A dishwasher at an Astoria Mexican restaurant recorded customers using the women’s bathroom by placing his phone in the ceiling vent, according to the Queens District Attorney’s office.
Hector-Miguel Ramirez-Vargas, 31, a delivery man and dishwasher at Holy Guacamole at 35-55 31st Street, admitted that he would hide his cellphone in the bathroom when “attractive women” came in the restaurant, according to police.
A female customer spotted the phone in the bathroom on Aug. 31, police said.
She went through the phone and found images of Ramirez-Vargas.
The victim also found a video of herself using the restroom, according to the Queens District Attorney’s office. Ramirez-Vargas had allegedly recorded the woman between 10 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.
Ramirez-Vargas reportedly fled the restaurant soon after the phone was discovered.
After his arrest on Dec. 6., Ramirez-Vargas admitted to police detectives that he had planted the phone.
“When I would see attractive women in the restaurant I would put my cell phone in the women’s bathroom to record them using the bathroom for my own personal pleasure,” Ramirez-Vargas told the police, according to the criminal complaint.
Ramirez-Vargas was charged with second degree unlawful surveillance for sexual gratification. He is being held on $1,500 bond or $3,000 cash bail.
Spanish people come from Spain.
Innocent until proven guilty. Post the videos online so we can judge. G-d bless us everyone. Next year in Jerusalem. Amen.
While there at it they should check the bakery that is across from where the Joney shop is or was. The men that have their coffee sitting their in their three piece suits. One was following me home years ago telling me to come with him for 50 dollars. He was Greek. My friend and I followed him bake to the bakery and the bakery hid him in the back saying no one came into the bakery. The old men sit there all day watching the young girls going to work or school.
Fee come sit on me lap o wee one.
What the he’ll does this have to to with Trump or anything he a pervert and that’s it
His boss wrote out his confession. Too funny. I used it for my own pleasure. That’s a heck of a coaching job
Astoria has been on the news lately for things no neighborhood would be proud of. It is quite shameful and what attracted people to Astoria like safety and security is slowly dwindling.
Frank: This stuff has happened in bathrooms in restaurants in Beverly Hills all the way to bathrooms in malls in Suffolk county. Thanks for your hysteria.
Living in a digitally linked world where broadcasts of crime and assaults are instantaneous and almost commonplace means that many of us are becoming desensitized.
Holy Guacamole, Batman.
send him back to where he came from !!!!
Don’t insult people just because your a trump supporter and hate Spanish people
It’s really rather amazing…….
This morning Gov. Cuomo said the attack that occurred at the NYC Port Authority was an attack against our country’s democracy!
Yet when Trump tries to ensure our country’s safety and welfare the liberal sycophants cry racism! Typical liberal bullshit all the time!
Don’t worry this country as constituted wont last long. The liberals will have their own country and the conservatives their own. No way can we be united ever again. the bonds that united us died slowly over the decades.
The liberal boogie man strikes again. Maybe you should try to expand your vocabulary. A word a day would expand your limited vocabulary and thought capacity by 365 words a year. At least it would give us all some relief from hearing and seeing the word “liberal” in every other word you use in a sentence. You people are like broken records.
Why are you assuming that people are Trump supporters and hate Spanish people just because of that comment? Even if the dude wasn’t Spanish he should go back to his country and commit his crimes there not here! Not only him but all those immigrants who are criminals!
Why the f. would you think for a second that he came from a different country? Due to his name?
because he is 31 and a delivery man and dishwasher in NYC. duh!
Agreed Diana! Has nothing to do with being a trump supporter or not.. being Spanish or not. If ur an immigrant, from anywhere, and ur committing crimes here and hurting other people, then you deserve to be sent back to commit them wherever you came from!
I guess he is Mexican. But really doesn’t matter. Most American cannot locate either country on a map.
How do you know this person is an immigrant? Do you say the same thing when the person’s name is John Carter or Mary Keaton? You know, people with non-British/Irish names are also born in the United States.
How do you know he is not a citizen? Aren’t you accusing someone of doing the same thing you are doing?…which is assuming this person is not a citizen.
His phone, social media accounts and internet uploads should be thoroughly searched and investigated. For all we know he could of shared the vids on line with others or posted them on some site.
The suspect is probably a democrat anyway.
