Man Accused of Using iPad to Peep Up Model’s Skirt
SHERMAN OAKS, Calif. (KTLA) — As a fashion model, Brittanie Weaver is used to being in front of a camera.
But she was creeped out all the same — when she caught another customer at a Sherman Oaks pet shop using an iPad to peek up her skirt.
It happened last Friday at “Puppy and Me” on Ventura Boulevard.
The store shared security videos of the suspect following Weaver around the store.
In the tape, the suspect repeatedly kneels down, pets Weaver’s dog, and holds his iPad out.
The man made her nervous — and the security cameras confirmed he was up to no good.
Weaver, 22, said she didn’t want to start a confrontation, so she instead wrote the store clerk a note to tell her what was happening.
After leaving the store, she notified police.
“Police said it’d be hard to track him down,” Weaver says.
So Brittanie took matters into her own hands. She went online to track the guy down.
Using a few clues including information off an ID badge he was wearing, she believes she found him on a social networking website.
Puppy & Me owner Andrew mazer says he’s happy his surveillance camera collected clear evidence for investistigators.
“I’m glad to be helpful — hopefully they can do something about it,” he said.
Brittanie says shes now working with detectives and wants to press charges.
But so far, she’s not liking what police are telling her. They say it may just be a misdemeanor offense.
“I want him punished to the fullest extent,” Weaver said.
