NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — An Airbnb guest was arrested for allegedly planting hidden cameras in the bathroom of a SoHo rental apartment.

A camera disguised to look like a cell phone charger was plugged into an outlet, according to authorities.

Investigators also say an iPhone inside a backpack was facing the toilet and had an app running that records video when motion is detected.

Prosecutors say 44-year-old Ron Rothman rented a room from two young women who were also staying in another bedroom while he was there.

He’s been charged with unlawful surveillance.
