SAN DIEGO — A registered sex offender was arrested Monday on charges of taking cell phone video of a girl in a restroom.

Robert Becker, 21, was arrested at his home in the 4000 block of Alpine Boulevard in Alpine after he was identified through Walmart surveillance video.

On August 17, deputies from the Lakeside Sheriff’s Substation were called to a Walmart in the 13000 block of Camino Canada in unincorporated El Cajon after a ten-year-old girl told deputies a man followed her inside the women’s restroom. She told deputies a man got into a stall next to her and used a cell phone camera to record her while making lewd comments. He left before deputies arrived.

He faces charges of attempted lewd and lascivious acts on a minor, annoying or molesting a child with a prior conviction and disorderly lewd conduct.

Becker is suspected of committing similar crimes in East County. Victims are urged to call 858-974-2417 or remain anonymous by calling 888-580-8477. You could be eligible for up to a $1,000 reward for information that leads to a felony arrest.
