Arrest comes just a day after fear that Paris Hilton was also caught in a video recording device
A man has been charged with voyeurism after a model told police she discovered a hidden camera in a changing room at a Toronto yoga studio.
The 18-year-old woman was at Studio 52 on Saturday when she said she found a recording device. She took it into a change room, where police found the video recording device. The model returned and identified the owner, Nick Lee, 36, who was later arrested at his home.
The Police service of Toronto issued a statement on Friday saying: “Despite initial concerns of potential criminal activity, police have determined the video recording was solely of Studio 52 employees, guests and guests only.

“As far as Studio 52 staff and guests are concerned, this was an honest mistake. Staff at Studio 52 are devastated by this incident.”
The news comes a day after a report that Police believe Paris Hilton was also caught in a camera at a luxury hotel in Beverly Hills last weekend.
According to TMZ, Hilton was out with friends last Saturday night and after a night of clubbing, got into a cab with a female friend who was under the impression that the windows were down when the car got to her hotel.
Instead, a camera that could be disguised as a smartphone lens was concealed in the rear window and was captured on a hotel room surveillance camera as Hilton and her friend entered the hotel. The person who installed the device may have sold the footage to a third party, TMZ reported.
On Friday, police arrested a man in his 40s for allegedly taking pictures of models and actresses at a studio in Beverly Hills.
