19-year-old investigated for allegedly taking photos of another man showering in NTU hall toilet

A 19-year-old man allegedly took photos of another man who was showering in a male toilet at an NTU residential hall, said police.

SINGAPORE — Amid a public outcry over a peeping tom incident at the National University of Singapore (NUS), another campus voyeur has been caught — this time at a residential hall at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU).

In a statement on Wednesday (April 24), the police said that they received a "999" call for assistance at around 1pm on Sunday (April 21) after a 19-year-old male allegedly took photos of another man who was showering in a toilet in the residential hall.

An NTU spokesman said in response to media queries that several students helped to detain the teenager, who is neither a student nor an employee of the university. 

The spokesman said that closed-circuit television cameras cover most of the common areas in residential halls. Campus security guards also regularly patrol the halls, and are stationed at every hall from 9pm to 9am.

NTU is assisting the police in its investigation, said the spokesman. 

The latest incident comes in the wake of a series of viral Instagram Stories by NUS undergrad Monica Baey last week revealing that a fellow student, Nicholas Lim, had filmed her while she was showering at NUS’ Eusoff Hall.

On Wednesday, NTU announced in an e-newsletter that it will be introducing an online module on anti-harassment in July for all freshmen and student organisers of orientation programmes. It will eventually be rolled out to all NTU students.

“A safe environment for our students is a top priority for the university,” said NTU in the newsletter.

The spokesman added: "NTU believes in building a culture of mutual support where students are encouraged to watch out for one another."
