EUREKA, Mo. (KMOV) – A 19-year-old Six Flags employee was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly spied on two 13-year-old girls as they changed clothes near a ride.
Police said a mother of one of the two teens saw the man watching the girls through an opening between the wall and door frame of a dressing room near the Monsoon Marge’s gift shop in Hurricane Harbor.
The mother told Six Flags staff, who later provided police with surveillance video of the man watching the girls from the gift shop.
Police questioned the man, who admitted to watching the teens as they changed. He was arrested on suspicion of invasion of privacy and released later that day.
Authorities said charges could come against the man next week.
Six Flags released a statement Friday afternoon saying the theme park was cooperating with authorities in the investigation.
“The safety and well-being of our guests is our top priority and we have zero tolerance for any inappropriate behavior,” the statement read. “Local authorities are now handling the situation and the employee has been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation. We have no additional information to share at this time.”
Police said they would identify the man once he was charged.
