Takoma Park Police have arrested a 26-year-old man for videotaping up women's skirts at the Takoma Metro station.
Police say Tapha Masai Nyang wandered around the Metro platform with a black backpack where he would approach women and ask for directions while he videotaped up their skirts.
Police say on August 15, a woman notified them about a black male who had approached her asking for directions to College Park. The woman recognized the man from the day before, where he also asked her for directions. The victim said that the man kept brushing his backpack up against her leg during both encounters. The woman noticed that the man was recording his cell phone up her skirt through a hole in his backpack and she tried to take the backpack from him. The man quickly fled the scene.
