CSU student accused of taking video of man showering at campus rec center

2 other victims possible

FORT COLLINS, Colo. - A Colorado State University student faces charges after a man showering in the campus recreation center was secretly videotaped while he showered.

Larimer County Sheriff's Office records show Tu Khac Tran, 20, was booked into jail Tuesday afternoon for investigation of invasion of privacy for sexual gratification -- a misdemeanor.

A statement issued by CSU police said, "CSUPD is continuing to investigate this incident to determine if there are more victims, but has not received additional reports. The suspect is currently enrolled at CSU. Because of the ongoing investigation, CSUPD will not release additional information at this time."

According to his arrest affidavit obtained by The Coloradoan, Tran was arrested after a man showering said he saw a camera phone aimed at him over the door of the shower stall. The man confronted the person holding the camera phone, who then ran from the building.

A woman who was seen with the suspect shortly before the incident identified Tran and police went to his home in Fort Collins. Police then arrested Tran and said he admitted recording the man showering, along with two other unknown victims at the rec center in the past two months.  He said he did it "for pleasure and as a curiosity and the danger of getting caught," according to his arrest affidavit.

He is free on a personal recognizance bond on Wednesday, according to jail records examined by 7NEWS.

CSU online records show Tran is a junior at CSU, majoring in Health and Exercise Science and is from Denver.  Efforts by TheDenverChannel to reach Tran for a comment were unsuccessful.
