PHOENIX -- Nowadays big brother is almost always watching.

Cameras are everywhere, but there are some places cameras don't belong.

In October, a surveillance video caught a man putting his camera phone up a woman's skirt to videotape.

This happened at the Target off Lower Buckeye Road and 99th Avenue in Phoenix.

The woman ran over to security to tell on the man.

When security officers found him, he was kicked out of the Target.

The man left with his yellow and silver sports style motorcycle helmet and denied any wrong doing.

He drove away on a matching motorcycle with no license plate.

“Hopefully it's just for personal use and not to put on the Internet or anything like that,” said shopper Katie Hernandez.

3TV found dozens of videos with the title “Upskirts” posted on YouTube.

One video was taken in a store similar to Target, and it appears the woman is oblivious to the camera.

Once the videographer gets his shot, he bails.

Shopper Cody Hernandez said someone who would take these videos “has issues.”

Earlier this month a man was caught on camera in the Paradise Valley Mall looking up two women's skirts.

Phoenix police don't think the same man was involved in both cases.

The suspect in the Target videotaping is described as Hispanic, 20-39 years old, 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall, a medium build, and tattoos on both forearms.

There is a $1000 reward leading to his arrest.
