A man has been charged over a large number of “upskirting” offences in Penrith.

About 11.40am today, a 52-year-old man was observed videoing under the skirts of female shoppers at a major shopping centre in Penrith.

He was arrested by police from Nepean Police Area Command, with his mobile phone being seized.

“Examination of the phone revealed over 28 video recordings made over the past two days within the shopping centre,” a Police spokesperson said.

“The man was taken to Penrith Police Station where he was charged with three counts of filming a person without consent.”

He was refused bail to appear at Penrith Local Court tomorrow.

Examination of the man’s phone continues, and further charges are expected.
