Herndon Teen Suspected of Filming Customer at Red Robin

The Fairfax County Police Department is investigating an incident where a 15-year-old boy reported being filmed while using the bathroom at Red Robin in Fair Lakes Shopping Center in late December.

Charges are pending against a 17-year-old Herndon teenager who police believe was involved in the incident. He has not been identified by police due to his age.

The victim told police that he saw a figure over his head with a cell phone pointing at the urinal. He then confronted the boy, who worked at the restaurant. The teenager then told his mother about the incident. She notified the restaurant and called police after leaving the facility, police said.

When police attempted to get more information from the restaurant, staff refused to provide information about the staff member. Police than obtained a search warrant the following day after the case was turned over to the police department’s child exploitation unit.

Police are seeking information to determine if other individuals were filmed at the restaurant. Anyone with information by call the department’s major crime bureau at 703-246-7800.
