LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's detectives arrested a Westlake man early Tuesday morning after he reportedly admitted to recording a 16-year-old girl taking a shower.

Around 11:30 p.m. on Monday night, the Sheriff's Office received a call from a home in Sulphur. They spoke to the father of the 16-year-old girl who told them he thought his daughter was a victim of video voyeurism while at a family member's home in Westlake.

After investigating, authorities say while the girl was at the family member's house she opened a cabinet in the bathroom and noticed a video recording device. After she looked at the video, she realized it was of her taking a shower.

Detectives contacted the family member - 27-year-old Michael Murphey of Westlake - to question him. According to authorities, he confirmed the allegation.

Murphey was arrested at 3 a.m. on Tuesday and was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with video voyeurism. His bond was set at $20,000.
