OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – A man accused of taking a picture of a woman inside a Johnson County Community College restroom is now facing a third charge. Friday , the district attorney charged Saysavat Bounyadeth, 39, with a third charge of breach of privacy. Bounyadeth is listed as a registered sex offender on the Kansas registry.
“As result of the follow up investigation by law enforcement we felt it was appropriate to add another count,” said Steve Howe, district attorney. “The crime was done in a manner where it was to satisfy the sexual desires of the person charged,” he told FOX 4 on Friday.
The charges stem from an April 27th incident that left a college student running and screaming from The Office and Classroom Building. Investigators said the victim chased the man after she said he snapped a picture of her in the second floor restroom, and then a group of construction workers caught him running.
Howe told FOX 4 that all three counts are now classified as a sexually motivated crime, which in Kansas can affect the suspect’s terms of parole.
According to the college, Bounyadeth is not a student or an employee.
The college issued a written statement to FOX 4 today that reads:
“Johnson County Community College remains committed to ensuring the safety of everyone on our campus. The college continues to cooperate with the Johnson County prosecutor’s office on this matter and all questions should be directed to that office.” –Judi Reilly
