BAY SHORE, New York (WABC) -- Parents are demanding answers after a hidden camera was recently found inside a bathroom at Bay Shore High School.

Superintendent Dr. Steven Maloney says the Bay Shore School District found out about the camera on Thursday afternoon.

The camera was allegedly found inside a single-use bathroom and an individual reported it to the building's administration.

"The Bay Shore School District takes matters like this very seriously and is cooperating with the Suffolk County Police Department to identify the responsible person," Dr. Maloney said.

The investigation into this incident is ongoing. The person responsible for putting the camera in the bathroom may face criminal charges.

Students said it's just one more thing to stress about.

"I just would never think someone would do that, I don't know, it was never a fear of mine, until now," senior Riley Gargan said.

But many students said bathrooms at the school have been a problem in general, so the school tends to lock most of them up.
