Look around the next time you visit a spa, or you might end up starring in an online video.
Police in Fairfax, Virginia, have announced the arrest of a man accused of secretly video recording naked men – including minors – at a local spa and selling the clips to a website.
The videos were recorded at Spa World in Centerville, Virginia.
Kwame Anderson, a 28-year-old resident of Newport News, Virginia, has been charged with three felony counts of unlawful filming of a minor, one misdemeanor count of unlawful filming of an adult, and one misdemeanor count of unlawful dissemination of the videos.
Anderson reportedly had recorded 152 videos of 81 men, including three juvenile males, at Spa World.
According to the Washington Blade, the investigation was launched in 2014 after a male customer of the spa saw a video clip of him naked posted online for sale.
The man informed Spa World who, in turn, notified the Fairfax Police.
At a press conference regarding the case, Detective Sameer Khan declined to identify the website where the clips were being sold, or if it was a gay or straight oriented site, but did offer, “It was a very prominent social media website that these were actually posted on.”
In a statement, the Fairfax Police said they had recovered videos of 84 additional victims which were not recorded at the spa.
“We are working with other area jurisdictions in hopes of identifying the additional locations and victims,” read the statement.
