SPOKANE, Wash. -

A 14-year-old is accused of taking cellphone video of a 6-year-old girl changing in a Spokane YMCA bathroom.

As of 3 p.m. Friday, police had not arrested the suspect, but officials did file a request for a search warrant of the cell phone.

Court documents say the incident happened around 6:30 p.m. February 24, after a grandmother and her 6-year-old granddaughter got to the North Monroe YMCA.

The grandmother brought her granddaughter into a bathroom stall to change clothes.

After she changed clothes, the grandmother saw there was a cell phone on the floor inside the stall, and noticed that it was recording video.

She brought the cell phone to a YMCA team member, who then contacted police.

Court documents say when police looked at the video, the teenager is actually in the video, and he can be seen placing the phone in a recording mode and putting the phone in the stall.

The phone recorded video of the 6-year-old girl completely undressed.

Officials at the North Monroe YMCA says this is the first time they've had an incident like this, but want people to know that the safety of their members and guests is their top priority.

"Our staff did everything correctly. When the incident arose, we made sure that appropriate law enforcement was contacted and all of the procedures worked well in an unfortunate incident. And it just reinforces the value of having safety procedures in place for our members," said Mary Berry, YMCA Communications Director.

The 14-year-old suspect could face felony charges including voyeurism and possession of depictions of a minor engaged in sexual explicit conduct.

The incident is under investigation with Spokane Police.
