GASTONIA, N.C. — A 15-year-old North Carolina boy is accused of taking a nude photo of a woman tanning and now the woman wants him arrested.

WSOC reported that the incident allegedly happened at the Shades of Summer tanning salon in downtown Gastonia earlier this week.

Wanda Ballard said she just finished tanning when she noticed the teen leaning over a dividing wall with his iPhone.

Ballard said she was undressed at the time. She said she called the police and wants the teen prosecuted to the fullest.

“I am very upset,” Ballard said, according to WSOC. “I feel violated.”

The owners of the tanning business reportedly spoke to the teen, who confessed to the incident.

Gastonia police said they are still in the early stages of the investigation and plan on reviewing the cell phone images.

Police said the boy could possibly face a felony peeping charge because he allegedly used his phone as a recording device.
