Man takes photos up woman's skirt in supermarket

CCTV footage of a man allegedly taking photos up a woman's skirt with his mobile phone has been released as detectives hunt the culprit.

The man, wearing a baseball cap, dark clothes and trainers, was filmed in a Tesco supermarket in Wandsworth, London.

He can be seen taking a brief phone call near the entrance of the store, before queuing up behind the woman and snapping the intrusive photos while she pays at the checkout, police say.

Detectives, who are investigating an allegation of outraging public decency, said the suspect is a slim black man with a goatee beard.

The incident occurred at around 1.15pm on February 18.

Anyone with any information can call Wandsworth Police on 101, quoting image reference 207534, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
