Officers from Midland Detectives have charged a man as a result of their investigation into allegations he took inappropriate images of women without their permission.

It will be alleged in December 2023, the accused used his mobile phone at a shopping centre in Karrinyup, to record vision under the skirt of a female whilst inside a store.

It will be further alleged in January 2024, the man used his mobile phone in an attempt to take images of a female teenager as she was changing in an adjoining change room of a clothing store located within a shopping centre in Midland.

On 17 January 2024, detectives executed a search warrant at the man’s residence and his electronic devices were seized. A forensic analysis of the electronic equipment identified a number of images of women partially naked or undressed taken whilst they were in change room stalls.
