Suspect Arrested for Video Voyeurism
Osceola County, Florida – On August 20 at approximately 9:25 p.m., Osceola County Sheriff’s deputies responded to an apartment on Perth Place in Poinciana. Upon arrival, deputies spoke with the complainant who indicated her 12-year old son told her Josue Carmelo Torres, a neighbor, had videotaped him in the shower. Her son indicated he allowed Torres into the residence because he thought Torres had permission from his mother to be there. The victim went to take a shower when he thought Torres was in the living room. While in the shower, the victim thought he heard a “clicking” sound. When he checked, he saw Torres looking through the door.
Deputies spoke with Torres who cooperated with the investigation. Torres told deputies he took photographs and then deleted them from his phone. Deputies were able to retrieve several photos from Torres’ phone. Based on the statements and evidence, Torres was arrested and charged with Video Voyeurism and Tampering with Evidence. He was booked into the Osceola County Jail.
