A Hampton, N.J., man has been arrested for secretly recording several people in Lambertville in bathrooms during 2016 and 2017, police said Wednesday.

Douglas Gimson, age 31, was charged on Dec. 3 in Lambertville with one count of third degree invasion of privacy and one count of fourth degree invasion of privacy after police say they discovered he observed and secretly recorded multiple individuals while they were in various bathrooms without the identified victims’ knowledge or consent.

The charges encompass numerous incidents that allegedly took place from approximately November 2016 until May 2017 in Lambertville, and from November 2019 until March 2020 in Flemington, where he was also charged.

The arrest resulted from a joint investigation by the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office’s Special Victims Unit, the Flemington Borough police Department, and the Lambertville City Police Department. The case is now pending before the Honorable Angela F. Borkowski, J.S.C.

Police say their investigation is ongoing, and ask anyone with relevant information to call the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office’s Special Victims Unit at (908) 788-1129.

Suspects and arrested persons are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law or until such rights are waived by the accused.
