A man accused of trying to record a woman who was changing in a store dressing room captured recordings of other woman dressing and/or walking around, according Fountain Valley Police.
Investigators now ask that anyone who believes they were victims to come forward.
Douglas Ruvolo, 56, of Victorville, was a former assistant track coach with Calvary Chapel High School in Santa Ana. He was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct of attempting to secretly film another, Fountain Valley Police officials said.
At 7:20 p.m. on July 11 police said Ruvolo entered the Salvation Army Family Store in Fountain Valley, walked into a dressing room stall, and tried to use his cell phone to record video the woman in the next room.
He reportedly placed the cell phone inside his shoe and slid it under the stall, which was occupied by 24-year-old woman, officials said. The woman spotted the phone prompting the suspect to grab the shoe and walk out of the store, police officials said. He was detained a short distance away.
Police said they found videos in Ruvolo’s cell phone of two additional unidentified female victims undressing at the same store just before he was arrested. Still other video footage indicates Ruvolo may have had his cell phone clipped to his belt while he recorded women walking around Target stores and Starbucks, officials said.
Some of the recordings occurred between June to July 2013, police officials said. Ruvolo is also had videos of young teenage and adult females in department stores, restaurants and parks, investigators said.
If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of three months in jail. He is scheduled to be arraigned at 8:30 a.m. on Oct. 28 in Department W-3, West Justice Center, in Westminster.
