Police and the City of Surrey have investigated following a woman's report that she was filmed while showering at the Grandview Heights Aquatic Centre.

‘Peeping Tom’ banned from city facilities after Grandview pool user recorded

Incident Sunday morning in South Surrey investigated by police and city staff

A woman’s report that she was filmed while showering at the new Grandview Heights Aquatic Centre Sunday has prompted a review of “everything” at the facility – including cellphone usage – to prevent a repeat of the situation.

“We’re reviewing what we can to hopefully mitigate this from happening again,” Stacey Rennie, the city’s manager of community and recreation services for South Surrey, told Peace Arch News Tuesday.

“A proliferation of cellphone usage now is something we need to be aware of and constantly reviewing.”

The incident occurred Sunday morning at the 16855 24 Ave. facility, which opened its doors to the public in March but held its grand opening on June 11.

The victim told Global News she was in one of the private showers when she noticed a man was filming her with his phone.

The facility was designed with universal change rooms – an open layout accessible to all, with a dozen private stalls and showers.

Rennie confirmed that, for ventilation purposes and to comply with health regulations, there are some sides of the shower stalls “that don’t go right to the ground.”

She said the perpetrator was identified and has been banned indefinitely from all City of Surrey facilities.

Cpl. Scotty Schumann confirmed that police also investigated.

He would not share details – citing a lack of charges and privacy – but said the investigation has been closed.

“We’ve dealt with the matter in consultation with the victim,” Schumann said. “After investigation, we have no concerns for public safety at this point.”
