Alleged up-skirter arrested – Town Hall

A man has been charged after he was seen allegedly “up-skirting” women at a supermarket in the Sydney CBD yesterday.

Officers attached to Sydney City police Area Command were conducting proactive patrols of the Town Hall commercial precinct about 3.20pm (Sunday 26 January 2020), when they were alerted to a confrontation between a man and supermarket security staff.
