A Brick Township man is facing a charge of invasion of privacy after allegedly being caught taking “upskirt” photos of a woman in a department store dressing room.
Police said Donald Sheridan, 62, of Brick, was observed by a witness crouched to the floor, holding his cell phone under the dress of a female victim in the dressing room of the Kohl’s department store Tuesday night at about 7:30 p.m.
According to Sgt. Jim Kelly, the witness immediately confronted Sheridan, yelling, “I know what you’re doing.” The witness stayed with Sheridan while the victim asked store personnel to call the police.
Officers arrived on scene, conducted interviews, and ultimately reviewed security footage of the incident, in which Sheridan “can be clearly seen positioning himself to hold his cell phone under the victim’s dress,” and placed Sheridan under arrest for invasion of privacy, Kelly said.
Sheridan was processed and released on a summons.
The victim’s and witness’s names are being withheld “to protect the dignity and privacy of those involved,” Kelly said.
“The Brick Township police commend this witness for getting involved and acknowledge that public safety is best served when the police and community work as a team,” he added.
