A Massachusetts man, who police allege spent two days underneath a woman’s mobile home watching and taping her while she was in the bathroom, has been arrested by New Hampshire officers.
According to Salem police, the woman told them that Christian Hobbs, 44, had sold her the trailer a couple of years ago but had recently done some work for her at the home.
Investigators determined that at that time Hobbs “snuck under the trailer and cut holes in the floor and then in the floor vent under the bathroom” while installing two baby monitors in the residence she shares with her toddler son.
After the woman noticed movement in the ducts she peered in and saw Hobbs looking up at her.
Police report he “simply said ‘hello.’”
Hobbs later told investigators “’I did it, it was me under the trailer.’”
Further investigation determined that “he had been under the trailer for nearly 2 days with food, beverages and tissues, observing and taping her when she was in the bathroom” and that “he had been masturbating under there as well.”
Charged with manufacture of child porn (some of the 16 one-minute videos he made of the woman included her naked son), wiretapping, prowling, trespass, and burglary, Hobbs remains locked up in the Rockingham County jail on $25,000 bail.
He is due to appear in court on August 27 for a probable cause hearing.
