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_img “The amount of balls we put into the box, a little deflection would have suited us, but unfortunately they got it.” Ireland head into September’s double-header against Gibraltar and Georgia knowing their qualification hopes have been dealt a significant blow, but one which in Coleman’s eyes at least, is not yet fatal. He said: “We’re still two points behind Scotland, but we were very disappointed in there. But Scotland have a couple of tough games coming up, we have tough games coming up – we have just got to look at the next game. “We’ll look forward to September and try to win them. I know they are cliched answers you are getting from me, but we can’t give up on this group and I think we are still in it. “Obviously three points would have been a lot better than one. A lot of people said it was must-win, but we won’t give up hope just yet.” Asked what O’Neill’s reaction had been in the dressing room afterwards, Everton full-back Coleman said: “Like everyone else, he’s disappointed, as you can imagine, any manager’s reaction straight after that. “We were going to keep it tight and then we concede 45 seconds in, so we got a bit of a slap on the wrist for that, and rightly so. “As professional players, that shouldn’t be happening 45 seconds into the second half. We have to take that on the chin. You can do all the stuff on the training ground you want, but you can’t really let that happen so early in the second half.” Maloney’s early second-half strike cancelled out Jon Walters’ 38th-minute opener which had given Ireland a deserved lead, and frontman Daryl Murphy was unable to cap a fine individual display with the goal his efforts deserved despite being presented with a series of passable opportunities. The Republic were ultimately frustrated as a game they desperately needed to win – and probably should have won – ended all-square. Coleman said: “To have all your hard work in the first half undone very, very early in the second half is massively disappointing, and it’s hard to take. It feels like a defeat, to be honest. “Obviously it’s not a good start, conceding so early in the half – that was poor from our point of view – and then the normal reaction after conceding so early is that they are going to be on top for a little bit. “But we did ride it out a little bit and Murph had a great chance, and it would have been great to make it 2-1. Robbie [Brady] played some great balls into the box a few times and we peppered their goal, and they just got that little bit of luck that we didn’t. Press Association Coleman and his team-mates had to make do with a point from their Group D showdown with Scotland at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday evening as they were caught with a sucker punch two minutes after the restart which handed the visitors a 1-1 draw they barely deserved. To manager Martin O’Neill’s horror, Scottish midfielder Shaun Maloney, who scored the only goal in the reverse fixture in Glasgow in November, was allowed to play a one-two on the edge of the penalty area and fire home an equaliser off luckless defender John O’Shea. Seamus Coleman has admitted the Republic of Ireland must learn from their mistakes if they are to keep alive their hopes of making it to the Euro 2016 finals. last_img read more
