Young girls say a man watched them in showers at SHU

BRIDGEPORT -

Young girls at a sleepover sports camp at Sacred Heart University say they found a man spying on them and recording video while they were in a dorm shower.

The girls are between the ages of 10 and 16 years old. They were staying at Roncalli Hall on campus for a Nike volleyball sleepover camp on Monday when it happened.

They say once the man realized he had been caught, he ran. The girls say they screamed and ran to their rooms.

The man has also been accused of taking down shower curtains.

One mom says she didn't find out until the next day. A father says he found out in an email two days later.

"I was livid, and I am sick to my stomach to think this happened to these young girls," says Catherine Casella, a parent of one of the girls.

Sacred Heart University issued a statement saying they have removed the individual who was allegedly involved.

Bridgeport police say one man is responsible, but they have not arrested him. An investigation is ongoing.
