UVMMC doctor arrested for voyeurism

A doctor at the University of Vermont Medical Center has been arrested and is being charged with voyeurism after police say he planted a concealed camera in a staff bathroom. 

Eike Blohm MD

Eike Blohm, 37, an emergency medical physician at UVMMC was arrested by the Chittenden Unit for Special Investigations Friday afternoon, CUSI said in a Friday evening press release. 

UVMMC security found a “KNOWYOURNANNY” camera concealed in an “inconspicuous item” and placed in a secure staff bathroom on Wednesday. A review of the camera by detectives revealed “a large quantity” of videos that constituted the crime of voyeurism, police say. 

One of the videos on the camera identified Blohm as the perpetrator, and he was arrested at his residence Friday afternoon.

“It should be noted that the preliminary review of the video evidence appears to show the unlawful conduct was isolated to a secured staff only bathroom inside UVMMC, which is not accessible to the general public,” the CUSI press release states. “However, further examination and investigative review is forthcoming.” 

Blohm faces a prison sentence of up to two years and a $1,000 fine, and was released pending a May 28 arraignment.
