Police say a 23-year-old O.H. Platt High School coach has been accused of recording a student while they were changing in the bathroom.
Daniel Barillaro Jr. turned himself in on Tuesday after a warrant had been issued for his arrest, Meriden police said. Barillaro was charged with voyeurism after police said a student said he recorded them with his cellphone inside a school bathroom.
He was released on $5,000 bond and is due to appear in state Superior Court in Meriden on Feb. 22.
Police said Barillaro was placed on leave from the Meriden school district after the student reported the incident. The school district’s website lists Barillaro as an assistant swim coach.
“The Meriden Police Department would like to acknowledge the bravery of this student to come forward and report this incident,” Lt. Darrin McKay said in a news release Wednesday.
Police did not say what team Barillaro coaches or whether he is also a teacher at the school. Police also did not release the age or gender of the victim.
McKay said the department’s Special Crimes Unit began investigating the voyeurism allegation last month after the student reported the incident to school officials.
The student said they “observed a cellular phone recording in a bathroom while they were getting prepared to change after practice,” McKay said in Wednesday’s news release.
Police said they identified Barillaro as a suspect and seized his phone. Police said a review of his phone revealed “no additional acts of voyeurism” or other victims, the news release said.
