Apple Valley Man Charged With Spying on Woman in Tanning Booth

Jon William Bogatzki faces a gross misdemeanor charge of interfering with privacy.

An Apple Valley man has been charged with spying on a naked woman in an Apple Valley tanning parlor.

Jon William Bogatzki, 28, faces a gross misdemeanor charge of interfering with privacy in connection with the April 16 incident.

According to the Apple Valley police report, the victim said she had been in a tanning booth that afternoon when she heard a noise and turned her head to see what caused it.

She said she saw a man looking at her over a ledge that separated her booth from his, with his arms crossed on the ledge, the report says. The victim said she made eye contact with the man for a few seconds, and he disappeared.

The woman told police she got dressed and left the booth to report the incident to employees, who told her that the person assigned to the booth next to her had been a man, and that he was the only man in the building at the time of the incident.

The woman said she waited for Bogatzki to leave the tanning parlor and watched him drive away in an SUV, according to the report.

Police got Bogatzki’s name and address from tanning parlor staff and went to his home, where he allegedly said he was in the tanning parlor at the time of the peeping incident.

Bogatzki is scheduled to make a first appearance on the charge June 27 in Dakota County District Court in Hastings.

Creepy! The parlor needs to improve their structure to ensure privacy. This is a safety issue for women as well.
