Cops: Man filmed boy, father in Gwinnett park bathroom stall

A man may have used his cell phone camera to record a boy and his father using a park restroom in Dacula, Gwinnett County police said. 

The incident allegedly took place on the evening of May 13 at Rabbit Hill Park. Three boys told a police officer they saw the man in a bathroom stall hold his phone under an adjacent stall, which a boy and his father were using. The boys told the officer they saw the suspect recording the father and son in the stall. The son may have been a member of a youth baseball team playing at the park that evening, according to police.

There were no “useful cameras” that police could use to help identify the suspect. The suspect was described by the witnesses as a heavy-set man with black hair, “a big bald spot”and a goatee. He was wearing a black “Mountain View” baseball T-shirt and pink shorts. An officer patrolled the park after the report, but did not see a man matching this description.

Officers from the Gwinnett County Police Department’s east precinct have increased their patrols at Rabbit Hill Park and a special victims unit detective is investigating. Police want to identify and speak to the father and son as well as the suspect in this case.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Gwinnett County detectives at 770-513-5300 or Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477. Crime Stoppers tips may be rewarded with up to $2,000 if they lead to an arrest or indictment.
