RADNOR, Pa. (CBS) — Radnor Police use facial recognition software to arrest a Philadelphia man accused of taking pictures up a woman’s skirt inside a Delaware County supermarket last week and they say it’s not the first time he’s done this.
The victim told police she was shopping at the Giant Food Store in St. David’s when it appeared she was being followed. She turned to find a man using an iPhone to film up her skirt. He fled but police got surveillance shots. Lieutenant Andy Block says those pictures were run through a facial recognition database.
“We took the image of the suspect that was located in the store, the person of interest and we entered that information into the software and we developed a suspect.”
He’s identified as 52-year-old Brian Bailey, who according to Block, was on probation in Montgomery County. He was sentenced last year for shooting up women’s skirts outside a bank in Ambler.
Lieutenant Andy Block says Bailey was on probation in Montgomery County for similar behavior two years ago.
“In that situation his phone was confiscated via search warrant and as a result of a forensic analysis on the phone, at that time there were over 70 videos of similar incidents.”
Block says they will search Bailey’s phone to see if there are other images but he says they have reason to believe there are other victims out there in the region.
He’s charged with invasion of privacy, harassment and disorderly conduct.
“I didn’t do it,” Bailey told CBS 3’s Walt Hunter following his arraignment at a District Justice office in Newtown Square Friday afternoon.
