Police: Man recorded women in cafe bathroom

Camera found inside flower basket at Kickstand Cafe in Arlington


ARLINGTON, Mass. (AP) — A man from New Hampshire charged with secretly recording women in a bathroom at a Massachusetts restaurant is scheduled to be in court Monday.

Joseph Hennessey of Salem, New Hampshire, is scheduled to be arraigned on charges including violating the state’s recent upskirting law.

Police arrested the 53-year-old Hennessey at the Kickstand Cafe in Arlington, after workers called authorities to report a suspicious person. Police say they found a camera hidden in a flower basket in the bathroom.

Police say Hennessey works for the Arlington public works department and has been out on worker’s compensation.

It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
