The Public Security Police (PSP) arrested a local student at the weekend for taking upskirt photos and videos, a PSP spokesman said during a regular press conference on Monday. When police checked his mobile phone and computer they found files containing over 15,000 upskirt photos and videos.

According to the spokesman, the suspect in his twenties is surnamed Wong. He told the police that he is a university student. The spokesman did not reveal the name of the university.

The victim who reported the case to the police is from Hong Kong. She is also in her twenties.

The spokesman said that the crime was reported on Saturday at around 7 p.m. at a food court inside a casino resort hotel in Cotai, when a witness saw that the suspect was standing close behind the victim who was in a queue waiting to buy food, and that the cloth bag which the suspect was carrying was put closely under the woman’s dress. The witness suspected that he was taking upskirt photos of the victim and therefore told her and stopped the suspect.

The victim then discovered that there was a camera hidden in the corner of the bag and therefore called the hotel security and reported the incident to the police.

The police found a camcorder and a phone containing 3,000 upskirt videos and photos inside the bag that had been modified so that the camera lens was exposed in the corner of the bag, the spokesman said.

After questioning, the suspect admitted to the crime. He also revealed that he had taken upskirt photos and videos of around 30 women on the day of his arrest. The police found 45 videos on the camcorder. He also admitted that he had started taking upskirt photos and videos of women in January.

According to the Macau Post Daily, the spokesman said that as the police believed that the suspect had more upskirt videos at his home, they went to his flat in Rua da Ribeira do Patane in the Inner Harbour district and after a search discovered two hard discs in his computer, with 3,800 and 8,400 files of upskirt photos and videos of different women. However, the suspect told the police that he couldn’t remember when and where they were taken.

In the videos, two women’s faces were recorded- the Hong Kong victim and one other local victim. The former told the police she wanted to take legal action while the latter said she wouldn’t.

The suspect has been transferred to the Public Prosecution Office (MP), facing charges of making illegal recordings and violating a person’s privacy.
