Police say what this man did during woman’s job interview was criminal

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – A man was arrested for taking video or pictures of a 21-year-old woman undressing during a job interview.

The woman told police she was asked to take off all her clothes during two job interviews at Kloke Enterprises in Fredericksburg. She said her interviewer told her to get undressed in an empty office and try on uniforms.

During her second interview, the woman said she found a hidden camera in the office where she was told to undress.

“Following an investigation and the execution of a search warrant at a home in Spotsylvania County, Mark Allan Haynes, 46, was arrested on July 22 for unlawfully videotaping or photographing a person in a state of undress and without their consent,”  Fredericksburg Police spokeswoman Natatia Bledsoe wrote in an email. “Haynes was incarcerated at the Rappahannock Regional Jail under a $2,500 bond.”

Kloke Enterprises, a Richmond-based moving company, has offices in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia and Tidewater.

“Throughout its 30 years in business, Kloke has strived to provide best-in-class service to its customers and to maintain a safe and respectful environment for its many employees and contractors,” the company said in a statement. “The conduct attributed to Mr. Haynes in the incident report, if true, is deplorable and completely inconsistent with Kloke’s policies, culture, and values.  Kloke’s management was unaware of the actions alleged to have been taken by Mr. Haynes until receiving a complaint.”

The company said it fired Haynes following an internal investigation into the matter.

“There have been no allegations that anyone else at Kloke was involved in or aware of this incident,” the company’s statement continued. “Kloke has and will continue to cooperate fully with authorities to facilitate their investigation. “

Police asked anyone with information about Haynes to call Detective Carlos Reyes at 540-654-5919.

    Why does the media crop some peoples heads? No forehead and no double chins makes him look more sinister.
    Sick puppy, he is.

    WTVR is being moderated….by some twenty-something interns?
    Media is so quick to throw stones at the various members of society; but, thin skinned they are.
    Funny, when a profoundly racist comment is posted, there is no moderation.

      OK Scott, you can now delete this comment since you have dropped the “moderation” note…..Or, do you feel this is some game? I have a reputation to maintain? I’m no troll, you know? Just don’t take me too seriously……Or, maybe you should?

      She was naive. Does that give him a right to do what he did? No. It is still illegal to take advantage of someone just because you can. Otherwise, you’d be able to do pretty much anything you wanted with someone who has a mental disability. And she didn’t undress in front of him. She did it in an empty room. He probably told her she had the job and he just needed her to try on a uniform to see what size he needed to order for her.

      Yep, blame her for trying to get a job and not that sicko for what he did. Apparently she wasn’t the only person he videotaped. You’re the idiot.

    I’ve been asked to try on uniforms at an interview before. They sent me off with a few to try on in the bathroom; I wouldn’t think oddly of the request to go try some on in an empty office. I think the way it’s framed in the title is sexist; of COURSE it’s illegal to video someone taking off their clothes without their permission. There’s nothing controversial about that.

    This probably isn’t the only case where a female candidate was asked to undress herself by the interviewer and taping it secretly. Such doings are common in several developed states and shockingly most female candidates aren’t even aware about them. Strict actions and guidelines must be employed before this sick threat becomes a major concern for our society.
