Mary­land man ac­cused of tak­ing up­skirt pho­tos

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

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.
