    Middletown police have arrested two Wesleyan public safety officers accused of videotaping a student.

    Middletown police received a complaint on April 8 alleging the videotaping and turned the case over to a special investigations detective.

    Richard Hodge, 35, of Hartford, told the detective that he did videotape a student, police said, and Michael Anderson, 34, of Middletown, told investigators that he received video of the student from Hodge.

    Based on statements Hodge and Anderson made, as well as the physical evidence police obtained, Middletown police applied for arrest warrants for both parties.

    Hodge and Anderson turned themselves in to the police department at 7 a.m. on Tuesday.

    Hodge has been charged with two counts of voyeuristic recording of another person and disseminating voyeuristic material. 

    Anderson was charged with disseminating voyeuristic material.

    Bond was set at $5000 non-surety for both and they are due in court on July 26.

    Police said no additional information will be available because this is a pending criminal case.
