HANOVER COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Shoppers in Hanover County are ‘disgusted’ to learn that deputies are searching for a man accused of filming up women’s skirts in Henrico County.

Deputies said the man was targeting women in two stores that were wearing skirts. HCSO said one of the incidents happened at Dollar Tree on Bell Creek Road in Mechanicsville on July 14.

“That’s nasty,” shopper Cadria Hopson said. “It’s disrespectful, that is not Godly at all.”

“The internet is one thing, but now when you’re at the store, physically recording, that is actually dangerous, that’s really scary to see. That’s why my daughter’s not coming outside anymore.” — Cadria Hopson

Sergeant Steve DiLoreto told 8News the suspect held his cellphone ‘below the hemline’ and was photographing the women.

“It’s disgusting,” Kristal Smith added. “We go in here all the time and to think about having to worry about that when you’re shopping with your friends is disgusting.”

“It makes you wonder what’s happened when you’ve been here, if somebody’s done it to you or your kids.” — Kristal Smith

The suspect was captured on surveillance video inside Kohl’s on Bell Creek Road at 1:20 p.m. He’s described by deputies as a thin black male wearing a white t-shirt, red and black shorts, a black scarf, and red shoes.
