Dad turns teenage son into police after discovering disturbing content on memory card
A father in Grandview Heights, Ohio, notified police after learning that his teenage son might be a “Peeping Tom.”
According to WBNS, the 15-year-old allegedly recorded three women from outside their windows, some while they were nude.
“I am ashamed. I feel like I have failed as a parent,” he told WBNS. The identity of the father was not revealed in order to protect his younger children.
According to WBNS, the father says he was doing his son’s laundry when he found a camera memory card . After plugging it into the computer, he found photos and videos of women in their neighborhood.
“It was just feelings of disgust flowing through me, like why would somebody do this to another human being?” he said.
After confronting his son, the teen admitted to recording the victims through their windows.
“The first thing I did was call the police and let them know, and then I took the memory card with the evidence on it to the police station and let them handle it,” he said.
Grandview Heights Police have identified victims, but continue to search the teen’s phone and electronics for any other images. The father has apologized to the victims.
The teen has not yet been charged with a crime.
