A victim made a citizen’s arrest Monday morning in connection with an alleged peeping and disturbing-the-peace incident in a Dwinelle Hall men’s restroom.
Dwayne Wiley was arrested for allegedly peeping and disturbing the peace 9:40 a.m., according to the UCPD crime log. UCPD spokesperson Lt. Marc DeCoulode said the victim of the incident made the arrest after Wiley allegedly disturbed the victim in the stall.
Wiley entered the bathroom while the victim was in the stall and began banging on the door, according to DeCoulode. When the victim refused to open the door, Wiley allegedly began peeping through the crack in the door and yelling racial slurs, DeCoulode said.
According to court documents, the victim saw Wiley in Dwinelle Hall later that afternoon and called UCPD. Officers detained the suspect on Dana Street and Durant Avenue, where the victim signed a private person arrest form and a written statement after Wiley’s arrest.
Wiley was taken to Berkeley City Jail and had an arraignment hearing Tuesday, during which he was charged with disturbing the peace with offensive language.
