A maintenance worker is facing several charges after a woman says he installed several cameras inside her home.

50-year-old Pedro Pomares Avila was arrested earlier this week and an investigation that began in June.

The homeowner says that after Avila was hired to do some work around her home, she began finding the hidden cameras.

Investigators say the cameras were found cameras in the ceiling, in a printer, in a bookcase, in the closets, in a smoke detector, in stuffed animals and even in a bathroom faucet.

When the woman and one other confronted Avila about the findings, Avila reportedly assaulted them and left the home.

He is facing two counts of video voyeurism and two counts of battery.
