Anoka County man arrested for filming children at YMCAs

| No Comments

Police arrested a Coon Rapids man Saturday after he was caught videotaping a boy changing at an Andover YMCA, news sources report.

According to the Pioneer Press, police are charging the man, Robert Dennis Minor, 53, with suspicion of interference with the privacy of a minor and possession of child pornography. The incident at the Andover YMCA occurred in a bathroom stall on Feb. 24.

The Pioneer Press reports that police searched Minor's home and found at least 25 videos of boys changing in locker rooms at local YMCAs and other health clubs. Minor also had child pornography, which police do not think he made, on his computer.

An article by the Star Tribune reports that Minor used a wristwatch with video and photo capabilities to film the boys.

Speaking about the potential victims in this case, Cmdr. Paul Sommer of the Anoka County Sheriff's Office told the Star Tribune, "We anticipate many victims, although they are most likely unaware they have been victimized."
