SAVAGE, Md (WJZ)– An owner of the Rams Head music venues and restaurants has been hit with more charges in a stunning case of bathroom spying. WJZ has learned some women fear they were victims and they’re considering lawsuits.
Christie Ileto has the fallout from this alleged invasion of privacy.
Police say the women on the tape are not identifiable but one Maryland attorney believes some of his clients may be victims.
Disturbing allegations are swirling around Rams Head in Savage Mill that Kyle Muehlhauser allegedly hid a camera in the women’s restroom. This week, police tacked on six peeping Tom charges in addition to the six video surveillance violations he was already facing.
“My office has talked with a number of women and we believe that at least a few of them are likely victims,” said attorney Russell Donaldson.
Donaldson says he couldn’t explain why but says these women may not be the only ones.
“I have reason to believe that it wouldn’t be just limited to six,” he said.
The 10 month investigation began after a customer tipped police off after a video camera on the floor next to the women using the bathroom.
This is the latest in a series of voyeurism cases. Just last week, Towson rabbi Barry Freundel pleaded guilty to 52 counts of hiding cameras and recording women in a Jewish ritual bath and Hopkins gynecologist Dr. Nikita Levy was accused of disguising a pen to record female patients.
“The person doesn’t know. That’s the biggest problem,” said Dr. James Dasinger. “There’s not consent of the individual being looked at.”
As for Muehlhauser, it highlights the big question: are there more victims and, if so, how many?
Women who used the ladies’ room at the Savage Mill location before May 2014 are asked to contact authorities.
The Rams Head Group is aware of the incident. All of the charges he is facing right now are misdemeanors.
