Toronto man charged with voyeurism after model allegedly finds recording device in change room
A Toronto man was charged with voyeurism Wednesday after an alleged victim says she was forced to remove a hidden camera recording device from a private changing room.
The woman, who asked not to be identified out of fear of reprisal, said a male client in her private changing room asked her to remove a camera after he discovered it on the nightstand where he left his phone.
The woman was told by the client: “Sorry, now you’re going to have to unplug it.”
The video recording device showed a man walking through the room, looking down at himself from a standing position as he changed into a t-shirt in the bathroom during a session.
“I put the bag outside,” the woman told the Toronto Police Service, adding that she did not know what was happening in the room.
The woman told police that after the man asked her to remove the device, he walked into the private changing room and immediately took off his clothes and dressed in another man’s t-shirt.
The woman told police she never heard who the man who took off his clothes in the changing room was, nor did she see the man’s face, and that she was not sure it was the same man who asked her to remove the camera.
The woman then called the police and filed a formal complaint.
In a police interview, the woman said she never saw the man who took off his clothes in the changing room, and that she never saw his face, until the police said it was the same man.
“He was totally naked in the changing room. He was completely naked,” she told police.
She said she asked the man who took off his clothes, what he was doing, and he said he was changing into a different outfit.
“He was changing into a different top,” she said.
The woman said she never told the man who took off his clothes in the changing room to put on a jacket and that she did not think he was changing
