ROSWELL, Ga. - For the second time this month, Roswell police are investigating allegations of a man using a cellphone to take video up woman’s skirt.

The alleged victim, who asked Channel 2’s Mike Petchenik not to identify her, said she was shopping Friday night at the Walmart store on Mansell Road when she noticed the man’s hand near her skirt.

“I see the hand with the cellphone. I turned and said, ‘What happened?’ Give me your (expletive) cell phone,'” she said.

The woman said the man denied doing anything wrong, but after she threatened to call the police, she said he bolted from the store.  She fears he’ll do it again.

“Today for me, tomorrow for one baby or something,” she said.

Roswell police told Petchenik they were reviewing surveillance video from the store.

“All these stores have great surveillance video,” said Officer Lisa Holland.  “We hope to go through that, find the incident that took place, and hopefully get him a vehicle perhaps.”

Two weeks ago, Roswell police arrested an East Cobb County man on similar charges.  Police said Scott Purdie took video up a woman’s skirt at a Super Target store on Woodstock Road.

The victim from Friday’s incident said she’s hopeful police catch the man in her case.
