Shoe-camera voyeur arrrested January 17, 2007 12:00am A MAN accused of using a video camera in his shoe to film up the skirts of women on Melbourne trams allegedly did it for four years, police said today. The man, in his early 20s, allegedly used an elaborate system to take potentially hundreds of images of women. The man had the camera hidden inside a pair of oversized Dunlop volleys with holes cut in the toe to fit the camera lens through. Hidden camera: Senior Constable Sue Benskin with shoe camera with lens at the toe and video camera Melbourne East Senior Constable Sue Benskin said the camera was connected to a cord that ran up his leg underneath his trousers to a bumbag. The bag was linked to a video camera, which police believed was used to take pictures of victims so they could be matched with images taken by the shoe camera underneath their skirts and dresses. The man's alleged scheme came undone yesterday when a woman on a tram heading north into the city noticed his hand-held video camera and complained to police she was being filmed. "The actual victim herself was quite distraught at the time and it's a very serious offence and we're taking it very seriously," Sen Const Benskin said. Police caught the man on a tram about 10.45am (AEDT) yesterday and he was released pending summons. Police also searched a St Kilda Road address where a large amount of photo- graphic material, equipment and evidence was seized.
