A former employee of a Fredericksburg business has been accused of videotaping a prospective employee in the nude, police said.

Mark Allan Haynes, 46, of Spotsylvania County is charged with unlawfully filming a person in a state of undress. The charge is a Class 1 misdemeanor and carries a maximum penalty of a year in jail and a $2,500 fine.

City police spokeswoman Natatia Bledsoe said the 21-year-old victim reported her suspicions to police Tuesday and Haynes was charged later in the day. He was placed in the Rappahannock Regional Jail under a $2,500 bond.

The victim said she went to Kloke Enterprises at 300 Lansdowne Road in late May or early June for a job interview with the moving company.

Haynes, the interviewer, at one point asked the woman to go into an empty office and remove her clothing so she could try on some company uniforms.

The woman complied. She later had a death in the family and didn’t contact the company for another month or so, Bledsoe said.

She followed up with the company early this month and was asked to come in for another interview. Once again, she was sent to the empty office to try on clothing and other things, police said.

This time, she noticed a box in the office with a hole in it with light showing inside it. She believed it was a camera, but she did not confront the interviewer about it before leaving the business.

She showed up at the police station Tuesday and was interviewed by a detective. The detective later interviewed Haynes and company officials, who told them Haynes no longer worked for the company.

The woman’s mother had called the company prior to police being contacted.

A search warrant was served at Haynes’ home, but it was not immediately clear if anything related to the charge was recovered.

Bledsoe said police have reason to believe there are other victims.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Carlos Reyes at 540/654-5919.
