UPDATE: Suspect Arrested In Berlin Walmart Bathroom Incident

Posted: Updated:

BERLIN, Md. - Police say they have made an arrest, after a man reportedly attempted to take photos inside of a woman's bathroom at a local supercenter.

On April 3rd, Maryland State Police in Berlin were called to Wal-Mart, after a woman reportedly saw a hand reach underneath the bathroom stall door holding a black smartphone, in an apparent attempt to take photos or videos. The victim reportedly chased the white male suspect towards the Home Depot next door, but lost sight of him before Troopers arrived.

During their investigation, Police say they were able to get video surveillance from Wal-Mart that showed the suspect following the victim from the store entrance, into the restroom area, and less than a minute later, running from the bathroom, with the victim following him. Police say the victim is seen pointing and yelling at the suspect.

They also apparently later obtained footage that showed the suspect getting out of a tractor trailer that was in a loading spot, at Home Depot, and after speaking with representatives from the Home Depot shipping/receiving area, were able to identify the suspect as George Toth.

Investigators got an arrest warrant for Toth, charging him with peeping tom, and prurient intent. Police say they tracked him to the Dover Home Depot, where Dover Police then arrested Toth on the charges, and on an out of state fugitive warrant. Toth is also reportedly a registered tier 2 sex offender in Pennsylvania.

He was later released on bond, and is scheduled on May 23rd, for an extradition hearing back to Maryland. The Worcester County Bureau of Investigations says they are still actively investigating this case at this time.
