PHOENIX -- Phoenix police are searching for a man who was seen taking photos up a woman's dress while she was at an ATM.

Police said the woman was using an ATM outside of a Chase Bank near 28th Drive and Peoria Avenue shortly before 3 p.m. Monday, when the man approached her from behind and began surreptitiously taking photos.

"He literally just walks up behind her ... gets fairly close to her, places his phone underneath her skirt, and begins to take these photographs or video," Phoenix Police Sgt. Steve Martos said.

Police have released surveillance photos in hopes that the public will be able to identify the man.

"I'd be pretty upset," said Tiffany Brandin, who was using that same ATM on Thursday. "I'd feel very violated, harassed."

The victim reportedly did not realize she was being photographed until police told her.

"Sometimes you're in a rush and you're not thinking about anything," said bank customer Kimberly Smith.

The suspect is described as a white man between 30 and 40 years old. He is 6 feet tall and weighs about 190 pounds.

He is believed to be driving a white Ford F-150 pickup truck, which was towing a trailer similar to a landscaping trailer.

Anyone with information is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
