VICTIMS SOUGHT: Fayetteville police arrest man accused of video voyeurism

Fayetteville police have arrested a man who they say secretly recorded himself having sex with several women.

Travis Lunsford, 39, of Fayetteville, was arrested Tuesday and charged with one count of video voyeurism following a nearly two-month-long investigation.

Police said they received an anonymous letter in November which indicated that Lunsford was videotaping sexual encounters with women without their knowledge. The letter included a flash drive containing 12 different videos of adults engaging in consensual sexual intercourse.

During the investigation, detectives were able to identify one female from the videos. When questioned, the victim told police she knew the suspect and that she had engaged in a consensual sexual encounter, but was unaware that she was being recorded.

According to police, there are other victims in the videos that have not yet been identified.

Anyone with information about the ongoing case is encouraged to contact the Fayetteville Police Department at 479-587-3555.
