She said the instructors, later identified as Laurenzi, provided her with clothing and asked her to try it on, according to police. The victim went to the bathroom and saw a cellphone charging block.

She previously saw a social media post warning blocks might be cameras, police said. She confirmed the block was a camera and removed the data card.

Police searched the studio and found multiple electronic storage devices. Police are still trying to determine if there are additional victims.
