Toronto man charged with voyeurism after model allegedly finds recording device in change room
A man is facing voyeurism charges after allegedly using a cellphone to film a woman undressing in a change room at a Toronto clothing store, local police have said.
Police say a model went to the store to use the washroom before the weekend’s Women’s World Cup final. When she emerged, she reportedly found a cellphone on her knee, which police say appeared to be recording. The woman told police that a store employee pushed the phone away and a supervisor searched the premises for the alleged video-recording device, which police say the woman did not identify.
The man was then arrested by police, who seized several items. Toronto police say they have evidence that he recorded a video under the woman’s clothes in the change room. Police say the man kept the cellphone, shared the footage on Snapchat and will now face voyeurism charges.
A spokeswoman for Women’s Wear Daily said the publication has multiple sources confirming that a woman spotted a cellphone in the change room at an Urban Outfitters store in Toronto on Wednesday and that the phone contained footage of her body. The woman confronted the man in the store, the publication says, and he left after apologizing to her and the store’s manager.
But CWT also notes that the model complained to police on Friday.
