VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Virginia Beach police are working to identify at least two women who they say were illegally filmed in the dressing room of the 17th Street Surf Shop in the Red Mill Walk shopping center.

The police department’s special victims unit says they recovered video from a recording device showing the unknown victims undressing.

Police tell 10 On Your Side they started investigating Aug. 24, after a woman reported seeing a person in the women’s dressing room with a recording device. It’s unclear if that woman is a third victim.

Detectives would like to hear from any white female, between the ages of 18 and 40, who tried on a dress or bathing suit in the dressing room at the surf shop, located at 2217 Upton Drive, between Aug. 10-22.

If you feel you fit that description, reach out to Virginia Beach police between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at 757-385-4101 and ask for any Special Victims Unit detective.

Officers say they have identified a suspect, but they will not say if that person is a surf shop employee or customer. Police say without the victims, they do not have enough evidence to press charges against the suspect.

Police say 17th Street Surf Shop is fully cooperating with their investigation. Any questions should be directed to police rather than directly to the store.
