On the afternoon of Tuesday, October 14, 2014, Towson University Police were informed of the arrest of Dr. Barry Freundel, a faculty member of the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies. Dr. Freundel was charged with voyeurism, and a criminal investigation is being conducted by D. C. Metropolitan Police and the assistant U.S. attorney handling this case. Towson University is cooperating fully with this investigation.
Dr. Freundel has been suspended from any and all faculty duties and responsibilities, pending the outcome of that investigation and associated criminal proceedings. At this time there is no indication that these activities occurred on the Towson University campus.
We are concerned about the serious nature of this matter, and we are providing support and counseling resources to members of the campus community.
