Maryland man accused of taking upskirt photos
Authorities have arrested a man suspected of taking pictures up the skirts of women at a Metro station.
Metro said Tuesday that Brandon Lynn Williams, 19, of Forestville, was arrested on a charge of misdemeanor sexual abuse.
Last week a woman reported that she felt a hand up her skirt as she was on an escalator exiting the Columbia Heights station. Video shows a man placing a cellphone up the victim’s skirt.
Metro said an anonymous tip led them to Mr. Williams.
Several other victims have been identified, but there are potentially dozens of women who don’t know that Mr. Williams took “upskirt” photos of them on an escalator, Metro said.
