Bathroom camera leads to court date for memory care worker
DaeSean Malik Greene
An employee of a Maryland memory care community has an April 5 court date after allegedly recording more than 70 incidents of female co-workers using the facility's restroom.
The case against DaeSean Malik Greene, 24, a worker at the 16-bed Sun Valley at Ridge Overlook (also known as Ridge Overlook Assisted Living) in Westminster, MD, began Oct. 30 when a female worker at the community found a camera hidden in a tissue box in the women's restroom, Elena Russo, a spokeswoman for the Maryland State Police, told McKnight's Senior Living. The woman took the camera to a nearby state police barrack.
“The investigators obtained the footage and saw that he was recording employees in the restroom,” Russo said, explaining that Greene also appeared in the footage. “It was a rudimentary camera,” she said. “He had to push a button to record.”
Greene was arrested and charged with one count each of private place – prurient intent, peeping Tom and visual surveillance in a private area — all misdemeanors — on Jan. 27, according to Carroll County District Court records. He was released on his own recognizance the same day.
Authorities found 70 videos on the camera, Russo said, adding that only employees were recorded.
Sun Valley had not responded to a request for comment from McKnight's Senior Living as of press time but told WBAL-TV that “the safety and security of our residents and staff is most important. The quality of care our team renders is unwavering.” This article will be updated if additional information becomes available.
