A warrant for the arrest of a man from Fayetteville, North Carolina, was issued last week after a woman said he was using his cell phone to film underneath her dress as she shopped at a local Target department store, court documents reveal.
Fayetteville police arrested Magrady Fredidando, 43, and charged him with felony secret peeping after the complaint was filed.
Court documents show that Fredidando was assessed a $3,000, unsecured bond on Wednesday.
According to the arrest report, the store’s loss prevention officer told police he saw Fredidando in the act of trying to take video up a shopper’s skirt.
The suspect’s case is ongoing.
Sadly, this is nothing new. A year ago, a man in Cincinnati was arrested for taking up-skirt video of two teen girls and was given a $7,000 bond for his crime.
Also last year, a judge in Oregon actually let a man accused of filming up a 13-year-old girl’s dress off without a charge, saying the man’s harassment of women at Target was “appalling” but not a crime.
In another case, an Orlando, Florida, man was arrested on two counts of video voyeurism for following women in a Target store in Waterford Lakes.
