    TACOMA, Wash. - A convicted sex offender faces charges of voyeurism after he was allegedly caught recording women in bathroom stalls at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma.

    According to a probable cause affidavit filed in Pierce County Superior Court, Adam Randolph, 30, is suspected of seven counts of voyeurism and three counts of attempted voyeurism between November 2016 and February 2017.

    The affidavit states a man later identified as Randolph was first spotted in a women's bathroom by a staff member on Nov. 10, 2016, who reported a suspicious person in the women's restroom of Wyatt Hall on the school's campus after she noticed what appeared to be men's black tennis shoes in a bathroom stall.

    Charges state: "The day before, she had been in the same restroom and noticed a person wearing black tennis shoes in one of the stalls at 8 a.m., when she returned at 11 a.m. and again when she returned at 1 p.m. 

    "The following day she went to the same restroom at 8 a.m. and again saw the black tennis shoes in the same stall. She contacted custodian Dan Jones before re-entering the restroom and asking the individual if they were OK.

    "The person responded with a 'grunt.' A few minutes later, they observed a white male in his 20s wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, black pants, and black shoes exit the woman's restroom and leave the building."

    Charges detail several similar incidents over a four-month period. Randolph was confronted by a campus security officer in a men's restroom after a woman saw him leave the women's room and reported it to school officials.

    "Police obtained a search warrant for the iPod and located eight videos of interest, all from Feb. 22, 2017," according to the affidavit. 

    Randolph was convicted of sexual abuse in Oregon in 2006 and attempted voyeurism in King County in 2011. He is scheduled for arraignment on Dec.14th.
