Police are searching for a suspect who approached a woman several times and then took videos up her skirt on an escalator.

City police are looking for a man who followed a woman at the Polo Park Shopping Centre and then used his phone to videotape the woman under her skirt as she rode the escalator.

The incident occurred on Wednesday, Feb. 26 about 2:45 p.m. as the woman, 23, was on a break inside the mall.

A man believed to be about 20 or 21 approached her several times and then followed her onto the escalator. The suspect was seen holding a phone and video recording.

The man was confronted but fled the area. He is described as being about 5'11", 160 to 170 pounds with a medium build and a dark complexion. He has short black, curly hair and was wearing a dark hoodie with a white shirt underneath.

Based on speech heard during the confrontation, English might be the man's second language, police said.

Police have released a video still to the public. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 204-986-2877 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
