A 22 years old Chinese national named Zhang Xiaoyuan is set to be deported from the United States to China after he was found guilty of violating women's privacy in a campus bathroom at the Arizona State University.

According to the Shanghaiist, two witnesses saw Zhang recording videos of women as they made use of campus bathrooms while half or fully naked.

In September 2016, two witnesses are said to have seen the culprit getting out of an ASU female bathroom and suspected his motives for being there. The women then decided to snatch Zhang's mobile phone from him and called for assistance from the police. When police officers arrived at the scene, Zhang had no choice but allow the authorities to search his phone.

As expected, nude photos and videos of women, mostly students, were found on the phone. The witnesses were even able to identify some of the ladies in the photos and videos.

When Zhang was interviewed as to why he did such lewdness, he mentions that having a "dirty mind" was the main reason. The police obtained an official warrant to further search his phone and found more photos and videos.

A total of six counts of unlawful and illegal viewing were leveled against Zhang. He was then placed on the list of hold departures in the United States. In January, Zhang was finally convicted of voyeurism charges and is considered as someone no longer fit to stay in the US. He is expected to be transported back to China by the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
