NORTH LAUDERDALE, FL – According to authorities, a 27-year-old man, identified as Lewis Phillips, was caught on camera committing an act of voyeurism by placing a cell phone underneath her dress, and detectives with the Broward Sheriff’s Office North Lauderdale District are releasing surveillance images of the incident in an effort to locate and arrest him.

The crime occurred around 3 p.m. Saturday, December 17, inside a Family Dollar store located at 8076 W. McNab Road. The victim, an adult female, was shopping when she noticed a man wearing a white t-shirt wrapped around his head following her in the store. The victim told detectives the subject appeared to be taking pictures and videos of her without her permission. After observing his actions, the victim confronted the subject and asked him to stop. 

Investigators say the victim then completed her shopping and stood in line to pay for her items when Phillips walked up behind her and placed a cell phone directly underneath her dress.
