KUALA LUMPUR: A man was reportedly caught taking upskirt videos of unsuspecting victims at a popular shopping mall in Bandar Sunway on Sunday.

The incident allegedly took place at about 7pm, according to a Facebook post that has gone viral.

“While I was shopping with my girlfriend, I saw a guy in his 40s carrying a few shopping bags secretly recording upskirt videos of female shoppers,” said a netizen who goes by the name “James Chow” on Facebook.

Chow said he was at a clothing store when he noticed the man acting suspiciously near several female shoppers.

He claimed the man was secretly recording upskirt videos using a camera that was hidden inside one of his shopping bags.


Chow said he then lodged a complaint with the mall’s management and security guards, who then tailed the man and observed his behaviour.

“After the security guards also witnessed his... action, they apprehended him and brought him to (the) Sunway police station,” he said, adding that police found “hundreds” of indecent videos in the man’s phone.

Chow, who subsequently lodged a police report said the cops told him that such cases “happen quite frequently in shopping malls”.

“They (the police) will try to educate the suspect to not repeat his offences again,” he said, adding that he was unsure whether charges would be pressed against the man.

Chow advised women who wore skirts to be aware of their surroundings in shopping malls, especially if someone was standing too close to them.

“Ladies who wear skirts, be careful of your surroundings when you are shopping, especially when someone approaches you closely behind with a shopping bag in hand. There might be a recording camera inside.”
