Police: Man recorded women in bathroom through peepholes at apartment



SCOTT TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Police plan to arrest a man who they said spied on women who used the bathroom in his Scott Township apartment.

Police said John Vistein, 39, made peepholes no larger than a pencil eraser to record intimate moments at least 23 times.

Police said Vistein was arrested in early January for not paying child support and asked a friend to go to his Torrence Street apartment and get his cellphone.

The woman said she checked Vistein’s phone and saw close female friends on the other side of the peepholes.

“They thought this was a friend and obviously he was not,” said Sgt. Jeff Skees.

Police believe Vistein waited until the women went into his bathroom and then ran outside into a furnace area to watch and record them.

“I always thought he was a nice guy,” said Frank Mamione, Vistein’s landlord.

A warrant is out for Vistein’s arrest.
