0

Fremont police arrested an Antioch man last week on suspicion of surreptitiously recording male victims inside a restroom at a trampoline park and possessing child pornography, police said Friday.

36-year-old Charles Rocha remains in custody since his May 9 arrest and awaits his next appearance in court scheduled for June 3, 2019 in Dublin.

An employee of Rockin’ Jump, a children’s trampoline business on 39100 Farwell Dr., reported a hidden camera in the men’s restroom on May 3. Police said they found the camera’s micro SD card contained videos of people, including children, using the bathroom.

Officers said images on the card also showed the suspect setting up the camera. The suspect, later revealed to be Charles Rocha, appeared to be a Hispanic male with black hair and a full beard.

Police said they identified Rocha by obtaining the business’ security camera footage then executing a license registration check on a white SUV he was seen getting into.

Police then attained an arrest warrant and a search warrant of Rochas’ residence. There, they found multiple recording devices, which contained other surreptitious videos, as well as child pornography. Anyone with information about this case can contact Fremont Police Department at (510) 790-6900 or email aholguin@fremont.gov.
