SEOUL, Aug. 28 (Yonhap) -- Police said Sunday it plans to summon an incumbent athlete from South Korea's national swimming team for questioning about allegedly installing hidden cameras to take photos of his female colleagues after a former male swimmer was investigated for similar charges.

The police plan to summon the athlete who came back to Seoul from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics that closed earlier this month within "two or three days."

A former national athlete was recently questioned by the police for allegedly installing a hidden camera in a female athletes' locker room in 2013. The suspect said he committed the offense with the cooperation of the incumbent national athlete.

The two swimmers competed in two Asian games and the 2012 London Olympics together, although only one managed to join this year's Olympics. The incumbent athlete reportedly denied all allegations.

The police said it has also seized the laptop of the former athlete to find additional evidence of the allegations.

The police also said while it has not yet found evidence of the offenders posting the videos online, it plans to continue its investigation to find other potential accomplices.
