A man accused of taking a video camera into a women’s change room at a Toronto-area Saks Fifth Avenue store faces voyeurism charges.
Toronto police announced Thursday that, on October 5, a 40-year-old woman reported she had been the victim of a “lewd and lascivious act” by someone she knew.

According to police, the woman made the discovery at the store’s location in Etobicoke, about 20 miles north of Toronto.
A lawyer listed for Constantin Kupferman said that neither he nor his client would comment.
“In keeping with the Code of Criminal Procedure, there will be no comment at this time,” said the lawyer, Linda Davies.
CNN has reached out to Saks Fifth Avenue for comment.
Authorities have not released more details on the case, including the model’s relationship to Constantin Kupferman.
