A man tried to take pictures up a young woman’s skirt at a Walmart store in Manassas, police said.
The incident happened around 10:15 a.m. Saturday at the store on Sudley Road in Prince William County. The victim, a 22-year-old Manassas woman, told police she was shopping in the store when she saw a man whom she did not know using a cellphone to “possibly take photos or video under her skirt,” according to a police statement.
Officers looked at the store’s surveillance video and were able to confirm the victim’s statement. She did not talk to the man, police said. The woman left the store and called police later from her home.
Upskirting incidents are not uncommon in the region.
Police put out a photo from the surveillance video of the man who they say is involved. He is described as being of Hispanic origin and is roughly middle-aged, police said. He is about 5 feet 7 inches tall and has a medium build, with short hair, a mustache and a goatee. He was seen wearing a blue striped polo shirt with jeans and gray tennis shoes.
