Hamilton man charged with voyeurism at Lime Ridge Mall

Hamilton police have charged a 23-year-old Hamilton man with voyeurism after reports he was taking photos and videos of females inside a store change room at Lime Ride Mall.

On April 12, just before 6 p.m. police were called to the mall. Witnesses had alerted the female victim and store staff, who then confronted the male before he fled the mall.

Police say an off duty officer chased the suspect through the mall parking lot towards the Staples store across the street.  He was detained until uniform officers arrived and arrested him.

He is scheduled to appear in court May 13.

Hamilton police are asking the two witnesses who observed the male taking photos to contact Detective Constable Adam Jefferess at 905-546-8969 or D/Sgt Marco DelConte at 905-546-3851.
