A man has been arrested on suspicion of voyeurism following an alleged incident involving his coworker and a bizarre use of syrup and jam.

Robert Somley, a 52-year-old landscape gardener in Monroe, Connecticut, was loading wood into a trailer with his female colleague when he informed her that he needed to take a break.

When the woman went to go and look for him around 20 minutes later, she found him naked inside the home they were working at, watching pornography on a laptop, reports the Connecticut Post.

When asked what he was doing, Somley replied that he needed to relieve himself before returning to work, according to police.

The woman then decided to leave the 52-year-old to his business and continued to load the wood onto the trailer by herself. After a while, she decided she also needed a break and went back inside the home.

When she returned, she allegedly discovered Somley pouring maple syrup on his naked body. The 48-year-old coworker allegedly admitted to police she found the act a “turn on” and asked to join in.

The pair are also reported to have used blueberry jam as part of the foreplay, according to the Connecticut Post.

Police said Somley secretly recorded the incident the entire time on his cellphone. When the woman found out there was a video, she demanded that Somley delete it, but he refused.

The coworker then went to police to complain that Somley had taken videos of her without her permission and refused to remove them.

Police then seized Somley’s cellphone after being granted a search warrant, where they allegedly found videos on the woman.

Somley was eventually arrested and charged with voyeurism. He was released after posting $50,000 bond.
