Atrocious. A male landlord who had allegedly equipped his female tenants’ bathroom with a one-way mirror and bedroom with pinhole camera so as to spy on them was detained by police for investigation yesterday at the Haidian district in Beijing, People’s Daily reported.
One of the tenants told reporters that the landlord had posted rental advertisements six months ago stating that he was looking for “only single young women”.
“A roommate of ours unexpectedly discovered our nude pictures in the landlord’s cell phone. She told us about that and moved in the next day,” she said. “We hurried to report the case to the police right away”.
There is a two-metre tall mirror inside these tenants’ bathroom. A hole has been drilled into the wall behind the mirror, allowing someone on the other end to see what is inside the bathroom.
“Someone outside the bathroom can also see what is going on in the bathroom due to the one-way mirror”. the girls claimed. They also added that the landlord had installed a pinhole camera in their bedroom.
Two pinhole cameras were found in a loudspeaker when the police investigated and collected evidence this morning, according to The Beijing times.
The peeping Tom has reportedly been detained and more investigations are underway.
