Caught unawares in underwear

Video clips of women in various stages of undress in public changing rooms have appeared on a pornographic website.

It might not seem unusual, except that they're supposedly of women in changing rooms here.

The voyeuristic videos have been uploaded weekly to the site for the past three months.

They are believed to have been filmed in changing rooms and they show the unsuspecting females stripping down to their undergarments and trying on clothes.

The women can be identified as their faces are shown. Some of them are seen in uniforms, which have been identified on the site to be from schools here.

It is not known if the videos were taken from a hidden camera installed in the changing rooms or pushed under the cubicle openings.

The videos were uploaded by various accounts and have received an average of more than 10,000 views each.

The most recent video, which was uploaded on Monday, had more than 7,000 views in two days.

The New Paper went to a dozen clothing retail stores in Tampines and Bishan on Tuesday to find out if such incidents have been reported there.

Retail staff said they did not know of such incidents at their stores but they keep an eye out for suspicious activity.

Miss Erra Sariqsha, 19, a sales assistant at Cotton On in Junction 8, said the store has at least one employee manning the changing rooms at all times.

"Sometimes people like to loiter and wait for their friends, but we'll ask them to stand at the side (away from the rooms)," she said, adding that each room is checked after use.

"We'd be worried if something like that happens because we don't want chaos and for our store and business to get affected."

Miss Sutini Samat, 27, who works at Forever New, a women's fashion store in Tampines One, said men are asked to wait farther away from the changing rooms as well.

"We understand the customer's concerns. It's not nice and we are all women. When we change, we don't want to expose anything," she said.

"If there were such an incident, we'd definitely catch the culprit and hand (the person) over to security."
