SALT LAKE CITY — A Roy man was arraigned Monday on charges of taking cellphone pictures up the skirt of a woman while hiding in a clothes kiosk.

The man, 45, was at Kohl's, 1154 Brickyard Road, on March 18 when he was spotted by a store employee in a clothes kiosk trying to use his cellphone to take a picture up a woman's skit, according to charging documents filed this month in 3rd District Court.

As the employee walked toward the man, he "was busy deleting photos from his phone," the charges state.

After he ran out of the store and into his car, the employee wrote down the make, model and license plate as he drove away. The employee told the woman what he had observed and she was "greatly upset" by it, the charges state.

The man is charged with voyeurism by electronic equipment, a class A misdemeanor. He has since written a letter of apology to the woman, according to police.
