GENEVA, Ill. (WREX) — An Illinois man is charged with allegedly video recording a minor changing clothes in a fitting room.

Alejandro Galvan-Mendez, 23, of Geneva, is charged with unauthorized video recording of a person under 18, a class 3 felony, and disorderly conduct.

Authorities say Galvan-Mendez was at a retail store in the 1-99 block of Randall Road, Batavia, when he held a cell phone over the top of a fitting room and video recorded the victim as she changed clothing.

The victim, who is younger than 18 years old, did not give consent to be recorded.

Galvan-Mendez has since posted bond. His next court appearance is set for Mar. 26.
