The videos were originally made as live webcam chats through My Free Cams, a site that allows people to chat with models as they undress and perform various acts.
D’Asti said police want to speak with witnesses because the women may have committed criminal nudity offences.
“But we are bound by what is stipulated in the Criminal Code of Canada,” he added.
“The individual is surreptitiously filming herself and it appears …
she’s trying to hide herself from other people in the vicinity.” D’Asti said the “model” was filming for an online audience, and it “doesn’t appear” that it was her intent for anybody around her to see it.
That said, “if someone came across her by accident, that can be offensive to individuals,” he said.
Windsor police are appealing for witnesses after several videos surfaced online of an unknown woman exposing herself and performing sex acts on camera at a public library.
WARNING: This story contains details some readers may find offensive. Matthew D’Asti, of Windsor Police, said the force is investigating videos of a woman broadcasting from two unknown public library branches, and what appears to be a Tim Hortons restaurant.
“The woman in the video is in various states of undress; she’s exposing her breasts,” he said.
“She’s masturbating in the video as well.” Dozens of videos posted online under the username Lilsecrett show a woman revealing herself breasts, buttocks and genitals in libraries, often with oblivious patrons – including at least one child – visible behind her.
“We know at least in one of the videos there’s a small child,” he added.
“We don’t believe the child saw anything, but that certainly is a concern.” The woman also faces a possible ban from City of Windsor libraries, he said.
Chris Woodrow, of the Windsor Public Library, confirmed to that there have been cases of a woman exposing herself at the library.
