Alleged pervert accused of filming women’s “private parts” released on bail

A MAN who allegedly used his phone to film up dozens of women’s skirts at train station’s across Sydney and stockpiled the images on his phone and laptop has been arrested, charged and granted bail.

Strike Force Artemis was formed last month to investigate sexual offences on the city’s Public Transport Network after receiving a report that a man had filmed up a woman’s skirt on an escalator at Central Railway Station.

Following a lengthy investigating, the 59-year-old man was arrested by strike force detectives on Friday, November 3 and charged with recording intimate images.


During a search of the man’s Barden Ridge home, officers seized a laptop and several other devices that were later examined and found to contain hundreds of indecent images.

The man was yesterday charged with a further 38 offences of filming a person’s private parts without consent and intentionally recording intimate images without consent.

He was granted conditional bail to re-appear in Sutherland Local Court on Wednesday, December 6.
