TCU Security Guard in Custody, Accused of Taking Photos in Restroom Stall: Police

Campus police believe suspect may have taken several photographs

A campus security guard at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth is in custody, accused of taking inappropriate pictures of a student in a restroom stall, campus police say.

A student reported she was using the restroom at the Mary Couts Library when she noticed someone pointing a mobile phone camera at her from an adjacent stall.

The student was unable to see who it was, but an investigation by the campus police department identified TCU security guard Alexander Marin as the suspect.

Campus police said Marin was, "identified, terminated and then arrested" and now faces charges for improper photography or visual recording, a state jail felony. Marin has also been issued a criminal trespass warning barring him from campus.

According to a statement from Sgt. Kelly Ham, the TCU Police Department "has reason to believe Marin may have done this at other times during the previous two months while at the library."

TCU police ask anyone with information to contact the criminal investigations unit at 817-257-6637.
