KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. (CBS) — A Montgomery County judge has increased the bail for an Upper Dublin man accused of lewd behavior in two crimes targeting women.

Prosecutors say Kornwell Chan was free on $100,000 cash bail for stalking a woman he met at the SEPTA Oreland train station and then breaking into her home and stealing her underwear (see related story) when he was arrested again this month for using a video camera to look up women’s skirts at the King of Prussia Mall (second related story).

Montgomery County prosecutor Samantha Cauffman argued that Chan’s bail should be revoked.

“His newest offense involved harassing type behavior against women again.  His crimes seem to target women, and he has the audacity to commit new offenses while on bail,” she told KYW Newsradio today.

Saying he was not happy with the trend of the charges against Chan, Judge Garrett Page increased bail to a quarter of a million dollars, cash.  That’s in addition to the $500,000 cash bail that was set for the newest case.

Cauffman says she respects the court’s decision and thinks the higher bail helps to keep the community safe.
