COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) - Texas A&M University police are adding more charges to a man arrested for hiding a video camera inside women's restrooms on campus.

Peter David Baty, 54, of College Station, was re-arrested June 12 on four additional charges on invasive visual recording. Officers arrested him at his home without incident.

He was booked into the Brazos County jail. No bond amount was set.

In May, investigators recovered an estimated 800 videos of at least 20 women from a single SD card that allegedly belonged to Baty. Each video file contained 10 minutes of footage that show some women partially disrobed using the restroom.

During a search of Baty's home for his first arrest in May, police recovered an external hard drive that contained 57 gigabytes of video and 2 gigabytes of photographs, according to an arrest report.

Baty resigned from his position on May 15 and was arrested May 16.

According to school officials, Baty hid the camera inside what appeared to be a phone charging device in a restroom at the Transit Building on Agronomy Road. The restroom, which the public does not have access to and is used mainly by employees working in the building, has a single toilet and sink.

Baty was seen on surveillance cameras entering the women's restroom around 5:00 a.m. beginning on April 12 and continuing on subsequent Fridays until May 3, according to an arrest report.
