    A Warwick, Rhode Island, man is facing charges for allegedly setting up video cameras in the men's restroom at the Providence train station and recording multiple men using the stalls.

    The Providence Journal reports 51-year-old Jose Torres is charged with video voyeurism. Police are investigating whether Torres may have set up video cameras in other locations.

    Police say a janitor discovered four devices disguised as wall electrical sockets and light sensors while she was cleaning the restroom April 20. Police say the cameras had also recorded Torres. They say Amtrak surveillance video captured Torres entering and exiting the restroom.

    Torres was arraigned April 21 and released on bail.

    Calls to the Public Defender's Office seeking comment on the charges rang unanswered Saturday.

    Online records didn't list a telephone number for Torres.
