62-year-old Brookdale man charged after alleged ‘upskirt’ recording of teen

A 62-year-old man accused of trying to film up a teenage girl’s skirt in an Armadale shopping centre has been charged with indecently recording a child over 13 and under 16.

The 15-year-old was shopping with her mother in Armadale central shopping centre on Saturday when the man allegedly approached her from behind.

He allegedly stood close behind her, and dropped an empty shopping bag on the floor, creating a pretence to get closer.

The man is alleged to have kicked the bag between her legs, then bending down to pick it up with his phone recording in his hand.

The girl’s mother put shopping centre security on to it, who then passed it on to Armadale police.

Armadale detectives have charged the Brookdale man, who is dues to appear in court at a later date.

Police are urging anyone who has had similar experiences to contact Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000; any information will assist the ongoing investigation.
