Police charge Ottawa Hospital employee with voyeurism

A 26-year-old man employed at the Ottawa Hospital has been charged with voyeurism after police say he was seen “taking pictures or video” of a woman in a change room at the hospital’s general campus on Smyth Road earlier this week.

The alleged incident occurred on Wednesday, according to Ottawa police.

Sexual assault and child abuse investigators handling the case say they are concerned more individuals could be affected.

The accused employee, who police say is from Innisville, is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 12, according to a news release issued on Friday.

Investigators ask anyone with information regarding this incident or others to call 613-236-1222, ext. 5944.

The arrest comes shortly after another of the hospital’s employees was charged with sexual assault.

Earlier this month, police arrested an orderly following a complaint from a woman who alleged he assaulted her after she underwent surgery in December.

The suspect in that case, a 46-year-old man, is due in court Feb. 11.
