EUGENE, Ore. (KMTR) -- A Eugene man is facing multiple charges after being accused of recording video of women in a downtown Eugene building bathroom and now police are looking for help in locating any possible victims.
Eugene Police arrested 45-year old Richard Casavan in early January 2013, saying Casavan discreetly recorded several women in a bathroom of the Citizens Building on 10th Avenue and Oak Street in downtown Eugene. According to police, Casavan had been charged with trespassing and ordered to leave the building at least two other times in the last eight years.
Police were originally called out to the building after getting a report from the building manager about a man in the women's bathroom.
When officers found him, Casavan was arrested on site. Police also found multiple cell phones in his possession.
Police say a forensic analyst then looked at the phones and found multiple videos of women entering the bathrooms in the building. Police say they're now trying to figure out who may have been victimized.
"There may be more instances of this type of activity that have been happening on the part of Richard Casavan, so if there are women in the community that have seen anything suspicious in public restrooms, any activity, they should report it, said Officer Richard Bremer of the Eugene Police Department.
Casavan is facing more than 30 counts of invading personal privacy and burglary. Eugene Police say he was recording the video for his own use and that the video was not being distributed.
Eugene Police says Casavan has been charged with similar crimes like this and has been to prison in his past. Casavan was held in the Lane County Jail after his arrest but released the next day due to overcapacity.
Officers investigating the cases are now looking for help. Police are asking anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the Citizens Building or any downtown Eugene bathrooms in the last month to call police officer Richard Bremer at 541-682-5154, extension 1182.
