CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) – A Navy pilot is accused of recording a 16-year-old girl without permission in the dressing room of a Chesapeake store.

News outlets report Chesapeake police spokeswoman Kelly O’Sullivan says 31-year-old Jake Baker of Chesapeake was arrested June 15 and faces charges including unlawfully filming, videotaping or photographing a minor.

Court records show the girl told police that a man looked over the dressing room wall and photographed her while she was trying on bathing suits in Old Navy.

O’Sullivan says the suspect fled after the girl alerted store employees. One of the workers was able to get a partial license plate number, leading to Baker’s arrest.

Officials say Baker is a U.S. Navy pilot based at Oceana Naval Air Station.

Baker’s attorney, Jon Babineau, said Friday that the pilot’s phone lacks any photos, videos or other data to support the charges. Babineau says “the truth will come out.”
