Suspected voyeurism at King Alfred in Hove
18 November 2016, 05:54
Police are seeking a woman who they believe may have been the victim of a voyeurism incident at the King Alfred Leisure Centre in Hove.
A man was detained by staff and arrested by police after it was suspected that he had been looking over a cubicle and using a mobile phone to record video or photos. One woman was identified at the time, but subsequent examination of the phone has revealed another victim who police would like to speak to about the incident.
The woman was changing between 7.30 and 8pm after swimming at the centre on Wednesday, October 12. She may not have realised that she was being watched, but her suspicions appear to have been raised as at one point she shouted out "Who's there?", disturbing a man who left the neighbouring cubicle.
PC Jon Mills said: "We do not have a clear image of the woman, but she appears to be white, brunette and possibly in her mid to late 20s. I would really like to talk to her about the incident, but recognise that this is a sensitive issue and if she would rather talk to one of my female colleagues, we will be more than happy to arrange that."
If you are that woman, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 101 quoting serial 1282 of 12/10.
A 31-year-old man from Newhaven was arrested on suspicion of voyeurism - operating equipment to observe. He has been bailed until January 10.
