Man suspected of recording women enters plea

A Victorville man who allegedly recorded women changing clothes in a Fountain Valley thrift store and while walking in public was arraigned Monday, according to a statement from the Orange County district attorney's office.

Scott Ruvolo, 56, pleaded not guilty to charges of disorderly conduct by attempting to secretly film another and faces three months in jail if convicted. His pretrial hearing is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Nov. 11 in the West Justice Center in Westminster.

Fountain Valley police are continuing to seek additional women who may have unknowingly been recorded while changing in a Salvation Army dressing room this summer, according to a statement from police.

Police said Ruvolo had recorded two unidentified women undressing at the store before the arrest.

Other footage on his phone included women photographed as he walked around Target stores and a Starbucks while the recording device was clipped to his belt, authorities say. The crimes occurred between June and July.

Authorities arrested Ruvolo on July 11.

Ruvolo was an assistant track coach at Calvary Chapel High School in Santa Ana during the time of his arrest.

Authorities are asking people who think they might be victims to call Det. Jesse Hughes at (714) 593-4480.
