A Manhattan woman is suing her former roommate for $1 million after she discovered that he had been secretly taping her with a hidden camera while she was in her bedroom. After discovering a camera in what her roommate told her was an "air-cleaning unit", Claudia Pak found more than two dozen video files on his computer of herself "in various states of undress and engaged in activities of a highly personal nature".
The files also revealed that the scheming sicko had tested the equipment on himself, the suit says.
"One video filed consisted of footage of [Tom] in Ms. Pak's bedroom strategically adjusting the camera to capture all of [her] activities," and showed Tom "posing partially nude in what is believed to be his attempt to imitate a nude and unsuspecting Ms. Pak in her bedroom and making sure the camera captured clear footage," the suit says.
The roommate, 38-year-old John Tom, was arrested and charged with unlawful surveillance when Pak called the cops shortly after finding the hidden camera and computer files.
