Four men have been arrested already for using a variety of means to film under women’s skirts in the Eastgate shopping centre.

“Police have received reports of a number of instances where males have been seen covertly filming under females’ skirts using a range of devices – from cellphones to covert camera systems,” Detective Sergeant Craig Farrant said.

“It’s extremely disappointing that we have to issue such warnings – but we do encourage women to remain vigilant while climbing stairs, using escalators or standing in close confined spaces with others, where they may be susceptible to such activity”
