Planet Fitness manager accused of recording unclothed victim from ceiling
NAUGATUCK, CT (WFSB) – A manager at the Planet Fitness in Naugatuck is accused of recording an unclothed victim from the ceiling.
Police said the incident happened on June 30.
A complainant told Naugatuck police he was filmed while in a tanning booth at the Planet Fitness on New Haven Road.
The victim told police when he exited the tanning booth to go change, he looked up at the ceiling and saw a man recording him with a cell phone. The victim didn’t have clothes on, said police.
“It’s very uncomfortable, especially me as a male. I come here pretty often, sometimes twice a day,” said Edison Sanchez, Waterbury.
Jordan Hill, 23, who police said is the manager of the gym, turned himself in to police on Tuesday.
Planet Fitness released a statement saying in part:
At Planet Fitness, the safety and privacy of our members and guests is our top priority, and we can confirm the franchise owner is currently working closely with the local police in their investigation of this incident.
One member, who has been a member of Planet Fitness since 2003, says she is shocked, especially after the many encounters she’s had with Hill.
“He’s always very helpful, very polite and as I said, never would even think something like this would happen,” said the Planet Fitness member.
Hill was charged with criminal attempt at voyeurism. He was released on a $20,000 bond and is set to appear in Waterbury court on October 19.
Eyewitness News is checking if Hill is still employed at the store.
