A hero dad tackled another man at Target who was trying to covertly take photos of his daughter and other women.
Surveillance footage from a Target in Cypress, California, captured Jorge Ibarra using his phone to try and take photos from underneath multiple women. At the checkout counter, customer Ismael Duarte sprang into action. Duarte and his wife chased Ibarra into the parking lot and snapped a photo of his license plate.
And if your license plate has both ALF and 666 in it, you’re probably up to no good. Police used the plate to track Ibarra to his home and arrested him.
Who is a big enough creep to try to take photos of teenage girls in a Target to begin with, but also to be so brazen think nobody would notice! Target has cameras everywhere! You are not getting away with that shit.
Apparently this guy had gone to multiple Targets on this one day, pulling the same crap. Duarte only started following the guy around the story after he saw him trying to take photos of his own daughter. His wife Angelica said she was disgusted imagining this guy having photos of her daughter.
Now if you’re one of those classy commenters who thinks this kind of thing isn’t a big deal…? Think again. Because trying to take upskirt photos counts as unlawful surveillance and is a felony. In California, it can get you six months in prison and a $1,000 fine.
Though people convicted of a “Peeping Tom” crime do not have to register as sex offenders, but it can still get you in a lot of trouble. And it generally a repulsive way to treat another human being.
Fred Caruso, who works at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, was recently arrested for taking secret photos of more than 50 women over the last several years. He called it “obsessive” behavior, and told police that he knew his actions were going to ruin his life.
Caruso faces up to 4 years in prison.
