A 20-year-old female employee called a manager around 2:30am on December 5th to say she had locked herself in a closet after a man was following her Isometric Exercises around the gym. Milford Police responded to find the employee visibly upset. She reported that the man had first been to the gym around 11pm December 4th when he had asked for a tour of the facility, which is Isometric Exercises permitted. He reportedly began following her around while she was trying to clean the floors and kept touching the machine, saying he was going to work with her. She eventually talked him into using a hydro massage chair typically reserved for members and went back to cleaning. When she came out of the womens locker room, the man was gone but he then returned around 2:30am December 5th. At that time, the employee was cleaning the mens locker room and he asked to use the chair again. She gave him tokens for the chair but the man allegedly followed her into the mens locker room and began making inappropriate comments that made her uncomfortable, while reportedly getting really close to her. Thats when the employee left and was able to lock herself in a closet in the womens locker room and call her boss.
