A 25-year-old suburban Seattle man has been arrested after a female high school swimmer discovered a cell phone taped to the wall of the locker room at the pool where her team practiced Wednesday morning.
Police responded to a 911 call from the Woodinville (Wash.) HIgh girls’ swim coach, who reported one of her swimmers had discovered the phone, according to the Redmond Reporter and other media outlets.
Upon arriving at Redmond’s Hartman Pool, local police arrested the 25-year-old, who was working as a lifeguard, confiscating his cell phone and iPad. According to police, the man confessed to taping the phone to the locker room wall. He has been released pending a search warrant for the cell phone.
“Hopefully it’s an isolated incident. It’s really disappointing, if anything, that we have that in our community,” a parent whose two daughters swim at the pool told Q13 Fox. “I’ll be checking the locker room every time we go to make sure there’s nothing taped to the walls or anyone looking suspicious.”
The 25-year-old faces charges of voyeurism and is barred from returning to the pool, reports said.
Meanwhile, police told local media they searched the premises for any additional electronic monitoring devices, and the facility, which hosts high school swim meets, has since been reopened to the public.
