A pervert was caught making seedy ‘up skirt’ videos of unsuspecting women using a camera – hidden in his FLIP FLOPS.
The 38-year-old man, who police have not named, had a tiny camera fitted between the holes of his Crocs style flip flop shoes.
But passers-by spotted him slide his foot between a woman’s leg while viewing her knickers on his smartphone which was wirelessly connected to the camera.
Crowds alerted the woman and a mob attacked the alleged pervert after the incident at the Pasar Tani Giant market in Jalan Langgar, Malaysia.
Kota Setar district police chief ACP Mohd Rozi Jidi said the man was collared by onlookers at around 9.30am on April 8 and lead away by officers.
ACP Mohd Rozi said: ”The suspect was bashed up by a group at the market after he was caught sliding his leg below her dress.
”His shoe was attached with a digital camera used to record live video and was connected to his smartphone.
”The victim is a 38-year-old female clerk from Jitra who works at the Employees Provident Fund office in Alor Setar.
”She was not even aware that she was being filmed until she was told by the crowd.’’
Police did not name the suspect, in line with protocol for naming criminal suspects.
But they said he is an operations assistant at a government-linked company and had no previous convictions.
ACP Mohd Rozi said he had been remanded in custody on suspicion of ”committing an obscene act in a public” and ”intending to insult the modesty of a woman’’ while officers continue their investigations.
