A lieutenant embarked for training on board the Bremerton, Washington-based carrier John C. Stennis is under investigation for allegedly trying to record women inside the female officers' bathroom. That's according to a report from Military Times.

It is the second investigation in the past two months into Navy personnel allegedly attempting to film women in the bathroom while underway, the report says.

According to a document obtained by Navy Times, the junior officer was caught standing outside the women's bathroom dressed in PT gear with a handheld electronic device held to a ventilation grate "positioned to view the interior of the female head."

When a woman aboard Stennis approached the 33-year-old lieutenant, he is reported to have said "sorry," and left the area.

The woman later identified the lieutenant eating in the wardroom and ship's security seized his personal electronic devices, according to the Navy message released on the incident.
