A Richmond doctor is at the center of an Indiana State Police investigation after employees said they found a hidden camera in an office restroom.

State police searched the office of Brian Altman Tuesday night. The doctor runs the Altman Foot and Ankle Clinic on Chester Boulevard.

According to our newsgathering partners at Kicks 96 in Richmond, Altman left the office around 3:15 in the afternoon. A female employee then went to the restroom and noticed a red light glowing under some supplies. She found the video camera pointed in the direction of the toilet, according to the probable cause affidavit.

The woman showed the camera to another worker and they checked Altman’s computer, where they found an icon that linked to the camera. The employees called police, who obtained a warrant and searched the office a few hours later. Investigators seized computers and other evidence.

Altman employs three females. None went to work the following day. They told police that the restroom where they found the camera is used only by employees and that patients wouldn’t have been recorded.

Altman went to work Wednesday and saw patients. He has not been charged and declined to comment about the allegations.
