A Glastonbury man has been arrested, accused of planting a camera in a bathroom and secretly videotaping his 15-year-old roommate as she undressed.

Glastonbury police arrested Alounkune Vongsarasinh, 38, of Glastonbury, on Tuesday night. 

Vongsarasinh, who also goes by Al Kone Vongsarasinh, is accused of placing a digital camera in a bathroom in a home he shared with the victims. He told police he planned to capture images of his 15-year-old roommate and her mother as they undressed, according to court documents.

The teenager discovered the camera on Tuesday night, shortly after taking a shower, according to court documents. 

She viewed the images, told her mother, and the two took the evidence to the police department.

The images on the camera show Vongsarasinh setting up the camera and also show the teenager getting undressed, according to court documents.

Police obtained a search warrant for the residence.

"We did go in there and we seized additional electronic media that we are going to be analyzing as part of an ongoing investigation," Sgt. Rich McKeon of the Glastonbury Police Department, said. 

Vongsarasinh has been charged with voyeurism and possession of child pornography.

He admitted setting up the camera, according to court documents.  He also told police he loaded the images onto his computer for his "personal viewer pleasure" and did not share them with anyone, according to the documents.

During his court appearance on Wednesday, the judge kept his bond at $100,000 and ordered him to have no contact with the victims.

Vongsarasinh, who is originally from Laos, has lived in the United States for 32 years and works as a broadcast technician for Fox 61.  The company declined to comment.

Vongsarasinh is due back in court on May 4. Additional charges are expected, according to police.
