Accused Martial Arts Peeper Held on Bond

Joseph Moscatelli has been charged with two new counts of voyeurism after police found more videos on his home computer of girls undressing at his martial arts studio, police said.

Moscatelli , 43, who owns the United Studios of Self Defense at 631 Boston Post Road and another studio in Branford, was originally taken into custody on May 28 when two female employees called police to say they had found two videos on the studio computer of a 20-year-old employee and an 11-year-old student undressing in a storage room.

According to court documents, there was also a third video of Moscatelli having a sexual encounter with an unidentified male.

Moscatelli can be seen setting up the camera, directing the victims to use the storage room to change instead of the bathroom and then taking the camera down, according to investigators.

Moscatelli, who is married, is now being held on $175,000 bond.
