Dalhousie University security staff say someone is secretly filming women on the Studley Campus and posting the videos to an online sharing site.

In an email sent to students Monday afternoon, Mike Burns, director of security, said women were “surreptitiously captured on video.”

“The videos were taken without consent of the subjects and appear to have been taken in a manner where the subjects would have been unaware that they were being recorded,” said the email.

Sheena Goodyear of OMI adds:

Const. Brian Palmeter of the Halifax Regional Police said it appears the video camera is obscured from site, possibly in a kitbag.

“The videos are disconcerting, and investigators are attempting to identify the person responsible for filming and posting the videos, and if criminal charges are warranted,” he said.

Neither Palmeter nor Burns could say how many women have been targeted or whether the videos are still online.
