‘Peeping Tom’ caught in women’s toilet spying on Chinese Olympic swimmers in UK

London, July 19 (ANI): A man has been caught for spying on female members of the Chinese swimming team as they prepared for the London Olympics.

According to The Daily Mail, Declan Crosbie, 25, locked himself in a toilet cubicle in the women’s changing room hoping to catch a glimpse of the swimmers.

But he was caught when three members of the team spotted him and reported to staff at The Edge Sports Centre in the University of Leeds campus that they had seen a man in the changing rooms.

The Leeds Magistrates Court heard that when the sport centre staff approached the locked toilet, Crosbie attempted to answer them in a woman’s voice.

But when he exited he was found to be ‘dressed smartly, carrying a rucksack’ with ‘his fly undone’.

When he heard that the police were being called in, Crosbie, a resident of Leeds, broke free and escaped from the sports centre. Police later apprehended him.

Crosbie, who has previous convictions for voyeurism and was placed on the Sex Offenders Register for life in 2009, pleaded guilty to one charge of trespassing with intent to commit a sexual offence, and will be sentenced next month. (ANI)
