Police: Twp. Man Taped Woman in Shower

Also accused of sexually assaulting her when she was just 16

A Morris Township man set up a camera to secretly record a 23-year-old woman in her bathroom — and years ago, sexually assaulted the same woman when she was only a teenager, police said.

Allan Goldstein, 62, of Sussex Avenue has been charged with aggravated sexual assault, invasaion of privacy and attempted invasion of privacy.

On Sunday, the woman reported finding a small camera secreted behind a hole in a shower tile in her bathroom, according to an affidavit signed by Detective Robert Shearer of the Morris Township Police Department.

She also told police that Goldstein had sexually assaulted her in November of 2003, when she was under the influece of prescription medicine, recovering from a surgery, according to the affidavit. She said that when she told a family member at the time, the family member thought she was hallucinating, and she never reported the matter to law enforcement, the affidavit states.

Detective Marshall Wang of the Morris County Prosecutor's Office and State Trooper Terrance Tennant joined Shearer to interview Goldstein Monday, and Goldstein admitted both to setting up the camera, and "that he had committed an act of sexual penetration" on the alleged victim, according to the affidavit. Goldstein also said he knew the woman, then 16 years old, was under the influence of prescription medication at the time, it states.

Police searched Goldstein's home and found a DVD with images of the woman in the shower, the affidavit states. It appeared to have been recorded in 2007, it states.
