A Long Island doctor is accused of installing a hidden camera in the bathroom of his medical office. Nassau County police say 54-year-old Vincent Pacienza was arrested Friday and charged with unlawful surveillance.

The doctor's staff discovered the camera, which had been concealed inside an air purifier.

Police believe the camera was placed in the restroom of the Manhasset medical office within the last two weeks.

Pacienza, of North Hills, was arraigned Saturday afternoon. He was released after posting $2,500 cash bail. It was unclear if he had a lawyer.
