Man arrested after allegedly peeping in women's restroom

Mountain View detectives are seeking additional victims after a Palo Alto-based tech CEO was found peeping inside a woman’s restroom stall late Monday morning.

Around 11:40 am on Jan. 2, Mountain View dispatchers received a call from a woman after an incident inside the woman’s restroom at the Panera on El Monte Avenue. While in the restroom, the victim heard another person in the stall next to her and then saw a man stick his head underneath the stall to look at her inside the stall. The woman screamed at the man who then ran out of the restroom and the restaurant. The victim chased the man, later identified as 35-year-old Eduardo Moreno, and confronted him near El Camino Real. 

The woman tried to take a photo of Moreno, but he grabbed her phone and pushed her to the ground before running off toward Marich Way. He was spotted taking his shirt off and jumping a fence before returning to Panera, where he was tackled by a group of bystanders as responding patrol officers arrived. 

The victim was able to identify Moreno as the man in the restroom and Moreno was subsequently arrested for robbery and peeping. Moreno was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail. Detectives continue to investigate this case and are concerned that Moreno may have additional victims. If you or anyone you know may be a victim of Moreno, contact Detective Josh Gould at

Detectives are also looking to speak to witnesses of today’s incident. If you saw anything, please also contact Detective Gould.
