— Police have arrested a WakeMed employee who they say used his cellphone to record women in one of the hospital restrooms.

Douglas Emmanuel Perry, 42, of 15 Bobbitt St. in Wendell, was arrested Wednesday on four counts of felony secret peeping after a woman at the hospital's main campus in Raleigh found the phone Nov. 21 in a waste basket in a single-person restroom.

According to a search warrant, when the woman pulled the phone from the trash, the camera was on.

WakeMed police were able to track down Perry after his wife called the phone and identified him as the owner, an affidavit for the search warrant says.

Perry, who is a custodian, was suspended the next day, a hospital spokeswoman said last week. It was unclear Friday if he was still an employee.
