NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — North Las Vegas police say they're seeking a man who apparently recorded his own face while placing a hidden camera in the bathroom of a clothing store.

Officer Aaron Patty said Tuesday that an employee noticed an out-of-place item on the floor of the restroom of the business last Thursday at a mall near Martin Luther King Boulevard and Craig Road.

Patty wouldn't name the store, but says it appears the camera was placed the same day.

He said the man could face a gross misdemeanor peeping charge called capturing image of private area of another person. A conviction could get him one year in county jail.

Store security video shows a man about 30 years old wearing black eyeglasses, a gray polo shirt, light colored pants and black sandals.
