A South Florida ice cream shop owner is facing multiple charges including video voyeurism after authorities said he put a camera in the store's bathroom to film a 17-year-old employee.
Sergio Khorosh, 55, was arrested Thursday on charges of aggravated stalking, video voyeurism and impersonating a law enforcement officer, Broward County jail records showed.
Khorosh, the owner of "Moo Moo Scoops" in Coral Springs inside the Coral Square Mall, appeared in bond court Friday where Judge Tabitha Blackmon detailed the charges against him.
According to the judge, Khorosh filmed a 17-year-old employee in the shop's bathroom and then stalked her at her new job and at home.
An arrest report said the teen had found a black USB cellphone charger plugged into the wall and facing a toilet in the employee bathroom that had a camera in it.
According to the arrest report, Khorosh had hired the teen in July and would tell her how beautiful she was and at one point, kissed her forehead and told her he loved her.
After the teen told Khorosh she didn't want to work for him anymore, he sent her multiple text messages in which he professed his love for her, threatened her and showed photos of gifts he wanted to give her, the report said.
Khorosh also allegedly harassed the teen and her family, and at one point told her he was a deputy chief with the Broward Sheriff's Office and would lock her and her family up in jail, the report said.
He also claimed to have a K-9 that he would let "shred" her and her family, the report said.
Khorosh, who lives in Lighthouse Point, was given a $76,000 bond and ordered to stay away from the alleged victim. Blackmon appointed a public defender for him.
