August 24, 2016 (San Diego’s East County) — A man with a prior conviction for lewd conduct has been arrested for allegedly photographing a 10-year-old girl in the women’s restroom at a Wal-Mart on Camino Canada in El Cajon, just off of Interstate 8, on August 17th.
The girl told deputies that the man followed her into the restroom, went into a stall next to her and used a cell phone camera to record her and make lewd comments, said Lieutenant Dan Brislin with the San Diego Sheriff’s Department. The suspect had taken off before deputies arrived.
Store surveillance video identified 21-year-old Robert Becker as the suspect. He was arrested on Monday, August 22nd at his home in the 4000 block of Alpine Boulevard in Alpine. He faces charges of attempted lewd and lascivious acts on a minor, and annoying or molesting a child. Becker may have committed similar crimes in East County, Sheriff’s officials warn. They are asking victims to come forward.
