Boston Globe: Man arraigned on charges of illegally recording patrons of Brookline restaurant’s bathroom

Boston Globe:

BROOKLINE — The owner of a kosher Chinese restaurant stayed out of public view Friday as he was arraigned for allegedly secretly recording patrons as they used the bathroom at his restaurant.

Tze Ping Chung, 63, of Weston was arraigned Friday in Brookline District Court, where he pleaded not guilty to 15 counts of photographing sexual or intimate parts without consent.

Chung was ordered to stay 100 yards away from the Taam China restaurant in Brookline and from the primary victim identified thus far — a waitress at the restaurant who Brookline police said was recorded “dozens of times and possibly more” while she used the toilet.

The waitress, who ended a relationship with Chung six years ago, told investigators she did not know she was being recorded in the restroom of the restaurant. The video files were allegedly found on Chung’s iPad and iPhone, which were seized by Weston police as they investigated allegations that he sexually assaulted a girl who is “known to him,” according to police reports.
