‘up-skirter’ charged after filming women in public places – Inner West

A man has been charged with multiple alleged ‘up-skirting’ offences following an investigation into an incident that occurred on a Sydney train in December last year.

Around 3.45pm on Tuesday 24 December 2019, a man was observed allegedly using his phone to make a video recording up a woman’s skirt at Central Railway Station.

Officers from the Police Transport Command were informed and commenced an investigation into the incident.

Following inquiries, a 46-year-old man was arrested at a home on Park Avenue, Ashfield, about 9.40am on Monday 1 June 2020, and taken to Burwood Police Station.

Later that day, a search warrant was executed at the Park Avenue address, with police locating and seizing a number of electronic storage devices and clothing that will undergo forensic examination.

The man was charged with 11 counts of record intimate image without consent and granted conditional bail to appear at Burwood Local Court today (Monday 10 August 2020).

Police will allege in court that the man had committed at least 10 additional offences on trains and in other public places within Sydney’s Inner West between January 2020 and May 2020.
