A senior police officer was arrested for allegedly peeping into a female restroom.
Busan Metropolitan Police Agency said Tuesday that the 44-year-old police inspector was arrested for looking into a female toilet at a police station.
The inspector allegedly hid in the restroom and looked into a stall to peep at his fellow officer on Wednesday. The female officer spotted him and screamed for help.
After apologizing, the officer said, “I walked in, thinking that it was a male restroom. But I heard a woman’s voice and peeped into the cubicle to check.”
He has been suspended from his post and faces a decision by a police disciplinary committee.
