LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man has been arrested months after police say he used his cell phone to take sexually explicit images of a female victim without her knowledge or permission.
It happened on Feb. 15, according to an arrest warrant.
Police say victim spent the night at the home of both 32-year-old Travis A. Cowley, who is married, and a witness. While she was there, Cowley allegedly took pictures of her as she was sleeping in the guest room, manipulating her clothes so he could photograph her nude.
She was not aware of what was happening, according to police.
Cowley then e-mailed the images to his personal computer, according to the arrest warrant.
A witness who was in the home found the images on Cowley's computer and told the victim what had happened, police say. That female witness also notified police, who eventually seized Cowley's computer and hard drives for examination by the Kentucky Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory, according to the arrest report.
A warrant was issued for Cowley's arrest on Wednesday, Dec. 11, and he was taken into custody later that afternoon at 1:30 p.m.
