Secret camera 'hidden in a coffee cup films more than 500 naked victims in gym' as suspect 'LAUGHS about crime'

A MAN accused of filming more than 500 naked victims in various gym locations reportedly laughed when he was arrested.

Peng Dong, 33, allegedly used a hidden camera inside a coffee cup to secretly record victims at several Wisconsin Athletic Club locations.


Police were called to the Club's Brookfield last December after someone found a camera inside his coffee cup, court documents say.

When police asked Dong to see inside his backpack, they reportedly found the camera inside the coffee cup.

The cup "contained a black plastic insert with a thin red and black electrical wire," that "appeared to match the connector that was attached to the underside of the coffee cup lid," an officer noted in official records.

He then told police he was using the video camera to catch someone he believed was stealing his belongings, as reported by Fox6.

Dong admitted he was attempting to record anyone who walked by his locker, according to the criminal complaint.

When asked if he recorded anyone naked, Dong laughed and replied he was "very certain" he captured several naked people, as reported by CBS 58.

He reportedly claimed he did not know he was breaking the law by secretly recording people.

After being placed under arrest, Dong allegedly told police he estimated he had filmed over 200 men in three different locations of the Club.

Some of the recordings examined by police reportedly date back to 2019.

Police have said there could be as many as 542 victims, including minors.

At least nine victims appeared to be younger than 10 years old.

Dong posted $1,000 bail after his December arrest, and then failed to show up for his court date in February.

There are now warrants for his arrest in the Milwaukee and Waukesha counties.

In a statement to members, the Club said: "The Wisconsin Athletic Club takes the safety of their members very seriously. It is clearly stated in our clubs that the use of video is prohibited in our locker rooms and is subject to state and local law.

"We are saddened that this took place and have a zero-tolerance policy for these actions and misconduct."

WAC member Peri Oliveros told Fox6: "It makes me pretty hesitant to go into the locker rooms and specifically like change and have my personal belongings in there.

"I’m pretty shocked at the moment."

The Sun did not immediately hear back from WAC.
