EASTPOINTE, Mich. – Michael Robert Capizzo was taken into police custody Monday on suspicion of using his phone to record video of women in an Eastpointe Big Lots restroom.
According to authorities, Capizzo, a 22-year-old registered sex offender, went into the women’s bathroom at the Big Lots located on 10 Mile Road, just west of Gratiot Avenue Monday, where he placed his cellphone under a bathroom stall wall to record an occupant inside.
Police said he fled the scene, but officers were able to identify and arrest Capizzo without incident.
Capizzo has been charged with using computers to commit a crime and capturing/distributing images of unclothed person.
Police said Capizzo was arrested in Roseville for the same offense in November.
