A Toronto man was charged with voyeurism after a model allegedly found a recording device in a gym changing room, according to a police report.
The model, who wasn’t identified, was changing for an event on March 3, police said. While she was in a private changing area, the model noticed something covering part of her face and decided to investigate further. That’s when she found the recording device, police said.
“He closed the film in her face,” Sgt. Gary Giroux said in an interview. “He would have known he would have some video recording device in her face.”
Detectives were contacted and began their investigation on March 7. They tracked the man to an apartment on Yonge Street in Toronto, where they found him hiding in a back bedroom closet, and they made an arrest on March 8.
Giroux declined to identify the model, citing the fact that she’s a victim of the crime. She’s not cooperating with police, Giroux said. The case remains under investigation.
James Brady, 45, was arrested on March 8. The lawyer for Brady could not be reached for comment. Brady was charged with voyeurism, possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000 and possession of equipment to view images and sounds, according to the police report.
Giroux said the model took “very good care” in securing her clothing, but believed the man must have been watching her while she was undressing. “She put everything together, even knowing how vulnerable women are when they come into a gym,” Giroux said.
