Police are looking for a man who used his cell phone to take a picture underneath a woman’s dress in west Oklahoma City.
Master Sgt. Gary Knight said the man was at the Outlet Mall April 19 in the 7600 block of West Reno Avenue when the incident occurred.
The man reached down as if to look for something then slid his phone underneath the dress of a woman and took a picture. A witness at the store saw what was happening and confronted the man, police said.
