PHOENIX -- Phoenix police are asking for the public's help in identifying possible victims of a handyman suspected of installing cameras and recording people in various states of undress.

Detectives began investigating Matthew Singer, 42, in March for allegations of child/sexual abuse, according to Sgt. Jonathan Howard. He currently is in custody.

Howard said during the investigation, detectives discovered evidence of additional crimes possibly committed by Singer involving victims who have yet to be identified and likely are unaware of their involvement.

Singer is employed as a local handyman and has worked on several remodel and renovation projects, according to Howard. Investigators believe Singer installed concealed cameras during his work and has recorded multiple victims in various states of undress, apparently without their knowledge or consent.

Investigators reportedly found more than 50 videos inside his northwest Phoenix home, which he apparently shares with his wife and her children.

"It makes me very ill that someone like that is in our neighborhood," one neighbor said.

Police are asking for the public's help in identifying these possible victims to determine if additional charges are appropriate. He currently faces charges of surreptitious videotaping.

Anyone who has information about Singer or his possible crimes or has used his handyman services is asked to contact the Phoenix Police Department at 602-262-6141.
