On July 3rd, Medford Police received a report from a 41 year old female that she was being sexually harassed at her workplace. An investigation was conducted and detectives were able to obtain hidden camera footage of some of the alleged acts. 

The investigation revealed the victim, who is a housekeeper at the Sovana Inn, 250 E. Barnett Road, had been physically harassed in a sexual manner on at least two occasions, by a co-worker who has a managerial role at the motel.
