Another alleged T upskirter arrested, this time for videoing on an escalator

Jaffar

Transit Police report arresting a Dorchester man on charges he got right behind a woman in a skirt on an escalator going up at the Downtown Crossing T stop, pointed his phone under her skirt and began videoing.

Police say they know this because another woman, behind Anwar Jaffar, 33, watched the whole thing around 9:10 a.m. yesterday and promptly reported the incident to them.

The witness noticed a distinct light of the cell phone was illuminated and she could clearly see the victim's image displayed on Jaffar's screen. Upon disembarking the escalator Jaffar put his phone away and continued to follow closely behind the victim. As the victim began walking up the stairs to exit the station Jaffar again took his phone out and began to video tape the victim as she proceeded up the stairs.

Jaffar is scheduled for arraignment on a charge of upskirting today in Boston Municipal Court.

Are videos of lady parts--well lit, professionally staged and groomed--suddenly NOT available on the Interwebs? Because last I heard there were plenty to go around.

There is a plethora of"voyeur porn" on the web, not my thing though I am a traditionalist. I hope this young lady is as apt to report other crimes, not taking away from the fact this is a sex crime and gross.

ugh

It's times like these that make me wish I could get behind the idea of vigilantism.

Why do you want to get behind it? Don't tell me you're going to take out your cellphone and ...
