Man accused of taking photo of teen in bathroom connected to other cases in the area.

After police questioned him, records show Vallejo admitted to walking into the women's restroom with his phone in his hand.

He's now charged with voyeurism.

Vallejo said he used the phone to "peep" but he didn't take any pictures of the girl.

That's not all.

Sources say Vallejo peeped on women at two different stores in Pasadena.

In March, he is accused of taking pictures of women inside a Walmart dressing room, and in April, he was caught taking a picture of a woman in a restroom at Dirt Cheap.

Vallejo has allegedly taken illicit photos of women at a number of businesses he's worked at and was even fired for doing it, but the incident was not immediately reported to police, sources told ABC13.

If convicted of voyeurism, he faces up to two years in jail.
