Austin police arrested a University of Texas employee on Wednesday for trying to take photos up the skirt of a woman in downtown Austin in September.
Timothy Torres, 39, faces a charge of invasive visual recording, according to an arrest affidavit filed on Thursday.
The affidavit said a woman was walking into the Chase Bank building in the 200 block of West Sixth Street around 12:10 p.m. on Sept. 21, when she noticed a man quickly approach her from behind.
The woman turned around and saw the man pull his hand away from under her skirt, the affidavit said.
The woman went to a security guard at the building and looked at surveillance footage that showed the man placing a phone under her skirt with the camera lens facing up.
Austin police took screenshots of the suspect and notified police across the city to be on the lookout for the man.
On Oct. 26, University of Texas police contacted the Austin Police Department and told investigators the suspect might be a university employee.
A few days later, investigators identified the man as Torres, and confirmed that he was a Project Management and Construction Services Department employee at UT, the affidavit said.
Torres was being held at the Travis County Jail on Thursday with bail set at $15,000, jail records show.
