A former Yuma dancer was booked in the Yuma County Detention Facility this evening. Bryan Cheuk Mun Wong faces several charges of exploiting a minor and more than 100 charges of surreptitious videotaping and voyerism. Wong is accused of spying and videotaping local dancers without their knowledge while dressing at three different Yuma locations.
"In September of this year U of A contacted the Yuma Police Department and informed us that they had arrested Bryan Wong who is 24 years of age, and also provided us information in reference to possible illegal activity that he was involved in here in Yuma," Officer Vidal Cruz with the YPD explained. She said the University of Arizona Police arrested Wong for secretly taping dancers on their campus. "Wong disclosed to them that he had also secretly placed video cameras in three different locations here in Yuma," she continued. "The Yuma Ballet Academy, the Yuma (Historic) Theatre and also the Yuma High Snider Auditorium."
YPD and the United States Marshal's service arrested Wong Thursday and transported him to the Yuma County Detention Facility.
"The individual had a hidden camera. It was video taping the individuals without their knowledge, in different stages of dress," said Cruz.
Cruz said they identified 34 male and female victims, ranging in age from six to 41 years old. "He faces a large number of charges so his time in jail could be extremely extensive if he is found guilty," remarked Cruz.
Police urge anyone who believes they may be a victim of these tapings to contact them immediately. Also, if you have any information surrounding the case call (928) 373-4700 or 78-crime to remain anonymous.
