first_imgA 21-year-old man was charged with voyeurism Nov. 21 for allegedly pointing his cell phone camera at a student in a Zahm House bathroom stall, according to court documents obtained by The Observer. The man was previously enrolled at the University and has been identified as Benjamine Wears.On Sept. 22, around 3 p.m., a student told Zahm rector Robert Francis that while using a first floor restroom in Zahm, he saw the person in the stall next to him holding a cell phone near his ankles with the camera application open. According to the probable cause affidavit, the cell phone was “pointed into [the student’s] stall under the divider between the two stalls” and the student could see the camera application and images on the screen.Thinking a friend was trying to prank him, the student yelled “what the [expletive]” but the person did not leave the stall. The student waited until the occupant left the stall and eventually saw a man with black shoes and a green backpack with a plastic bottle exit and “bolt” out of the bathroom without washing his hands, court documents said.The student chased after the man but didn’t catch him, and later that day reported the incident to the Zahm rector, according to court documents. A police report was filed that afternoon.The next weekend, the student saw the suspect, “who identified himself eventually as Benjamine Wears by both name and by ND ID card,” according to the probable cause affidavit. Police on Oct. 4 interviewed Wears, who said several times he had not been at Zahm.When asked why he tried to swipe into Zahm in August, even though his card wasn’t able to open the door, Wears said he was testing to see if his ID really wouldn’t work on the dormitories, court documents said. When asked about a similar incident that happened in the Hesburgh Library, Wears said he was not responsible for the incident.After executing a search warrant for Wears’ phone and searching it, the Notre Dame Police Department did not find any videos of the inside of the bathrooms. However, the location data of the phone was consistent with Zahm House around the time of the incident, according to the court documents, and the phone’s data shows the camera application was open at a time consistent with the student’s description of events.According to the probable cause affidavit, the location data for Wears’ phone was consistent with the library around the time of the other incident, and the location data shows he left the library a few minutes after the time of the incident.Data from Wears’ phone allegedly shows he had visited websites where men were unknowingly recorded in bathrooms, according to court documents. However, there is no evidence he ever uploaded any videos to the sites.Wears faces one charge of voyeurism and had his initial hearing on Dec. 3., Jessica McBrier, the St. Joseph County prosecutor’s office spokesperson, said. Wears’ attorney, Michael Tuszynski, did not return a request for comment by the time of publication.University spokesperson Dennis Brown provided a statement on the alleged incident on behalf of Notre Dame.“The student is not enrolled at the University, and local authorities are addressing the matter,” Brown said.Tags: Hesburgh Library, NDPD, voyeurism, Zahmlast_img read more

first_imgBIG RUN—Gateway’s Orne Bey scoots past the Penn Hills defense for a 34-yard TD run in the Gators 19-7 win over the Indians in the season opener Sept. 4. “I played on Penn Hills’ last WPIAL and State championship team in 1995,” said line coach Demond Gibson. “That was a very special group and I think this could also be a very special group.”But everything that glitters is not gold. Gateway pulled off the biggest upset of the opening night of the WPIAL football season by knocking off Penn Hills 19-7. Coach Ron Graham, in his second season as head coach of the Indians, turned into a Dr. Frankenstein this summer by switching the position of many of his star players.Davis moved from defensive line to linebacker, Christian moved from safety to cornerback and Ifill moved from shutdown corner to safety. Donald is also playing a different position.Gateway senior quarterback Rob Kalkstein is near the top of his class at Gateway and has garnered attention both athletically and academically from Ivy League schools such as Princeton, Harvard, Columbia and Dartmouth. Kalkstein, a four-year starter, passed with the precision of a surgeon and sliced up the Indians defense by passing for 193 yards in the first half.Penn Hills and Gateway also combined for six first half turnovers, five by Gateway, and the teams finished with a total of seven.On the first possession, Kalkstein drove Gateway to the Penn Hills three before his pass was intercepted in the end zone by Christian. Christian has received Division-I offers from Michigan, Pitt and West Virginia.On its next possession, Gateway reached the Penn Hills 13 following Kalkstein’s 10-yard completion to Shawn Brister. But like Bubby Brister, he fumbled the ball away on contact when he was blasted in the helmet by the trumpet of Penn Hills’ Myles Davis. Davis verbally committed to Syracuse in the spring,Gateway also turned the ball over once on the Penn Hills 7, when, after the Gators marched to the Penn Hills 1, Kalkstein’s pass was intercepted by Michael “The Thriller” Jackson who accelerated down the sideline looking as smooth as 24-carat gold for an apparent 93-yard touchdown.The six points were already on the board when the officials threw a late flag on Mr. Murphy of Murphy’s Law, the one that says, “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong for Penn Hills at the worst possible moment.”Finally, Gateway broke through, scoring with 5:19 left in the second quarter on a 21-yard touchdown pass from Kalkstein to Stephen Vranka, giving the Gators a 6-0 lead that stood into halftime. Vranka, a football, basketball and baseball player at Gateway, has verbally committed to play baseball at Pitt.Brendon Felder, a senior transfer from Boston is playing running back, wide receiver and defensive back for the Gators. Gator head coach Terry Smith said Felder has more than 20 Division-I offers and is leaning toward North Carolina, Boston College, Maryland or Pitt.Felder, who runs the 40 in a blistering 4.3 and looks like he’s ready to challenge Usain Bolt to a race, wasn’t much of a challenge to the Penn Hills defense. Felder found out quickly from the Donald, Davis, Ifill and Christian-led Penn Hills defense that the WPIAL stands for the best football in the country.Gateway benched Felder in the second half and turned to senior running back Orne Bey who rose from the bench, like Neptune from the sea. Bey gained 130 rushing and scored both Gateway touchdowns, averaging 15 yards per carry.Penn Hills closed to within 13-7 in the fourth quarter, scoring its only points on Chaz Whittaker’s 33-yard touchdown pass to Ray Harris with 7:38 remaining.Whittaker, only a sophomore, was 8-for-13 for 103 yards, and Terrell Roberson rushed for nearly 100 yards for Penn Hills.“I could have made a difference out there tonight either as a running back or defensive back,” said Penn Hills junior JoVon Charles. “I hurt my leg and they did let me suit up tonight, but I’ll be back.”Gateway finished 12-1 overall in 2008 and captured another Quad South championship. The Gators outscored their opponents 505-115 over the 13 games.Could the Gators make it to Heinz Field three years in a row?“We don’t talk much about last season,” Smith said. “This is a new season. It’s a new group of seniors, and there is a new group of starters. This team has a new identity. They understand the importance of hard work. There’s a foundation laid here at Gateway, and these kids are following it.”Smith said he expects Gateway to throw the ball more this season. To help in that is a stable of receivers led by Vranka and includes Brisker, Nunley, juniors Armstead Williams, Dondi Kirby Jr., and Felder.Penn Hills expects to meet Gateway again in the playoffs and maybe the championship. The difference again might be Orne Bey. The Gateway Gators, who played in the WPIAL Quad-A title game at Heinz Field three times over the past five seasons, came into Yuhas-McGinley stadium unranked to face the heavily favored and No. 1 ranked Penn Hills Indians. Many feel this is perhaps the most talented team Penn Hills has ever had. They have as many as six players drawing Division I interest and that includes the “Fab Four” of Aaron Donald, Brandon Ifill, Myles Davis and Cullen Christian.last_img read more
