The former Pace student claims he’s innocent and the situation surrounding his arrest for unlawful surveillance is “a very big misunderstanding.”

Anthony Abraham, the former Pace student, was identified as the individual arrested for unlawful surveillance, according to the Mount Pleasant Police Department (PD). He was allegedly recording a student using the urinal in the Miller Hall bathroom on Mar. 6.

Mount Pleasant PD would not disclose the victim’s name and contact information due to an ongoing investigation.

Abraham believes that he is innocent, however, and describes the whole event as “a very big misunderstanding.”

Abraham enjoys studying at his old university and went to Motorola Library at around 12:30 P.M to study for his upcoming Medical College Admissions Test.

“At around 4:00 P.M, I went to the bathroom on the second floor where I found that the toilet was very badly clogged and the odor was unbearable,” Abraham said. “I went into the bathroom at Miller Hall.”

Abraham explained he does not like to use the bathroom when other people are present therefore he looked under the stall wall to see if the bathroom was clear but he could not see anything.

He used his phone’s camera to see if the bathroom was clear or not.

“Here is where the misunderstanding occurred, a man was in fact still in the bathroom and saw my camera above the stall,” Abraham said. “He became uneasy and concerned and told security.”

Once Abraham was in police custody, he offered his phone to authorities so they could look through his phone for evidence.

“I am very upset that this is happening to me,” Abraham said. “This hasn’t left my mind since that day.”

Abraham declined to comment any further.
