CLERMONT, Fla. - A woman and her friend will be looking at a photo lineup Wednesday evening in an attempt to identify a man they said was trying to film up the woman's skirt as she shopped at the Publix grocery store in Clermont.

The alleged victim told Channel 9’s Myrt Price she was shopping for Super Bowl snacks at the Citrus Tower Boulevard Publix when she felt the man get too close to her.  That’s when her friend noticed a camera attached to the man’s shoe, she said.

The woman said the man was bold and recorded her in an aisle that was packed with shoppers. She said he also appeared to know exactly what he was doing.

 “It’s absolutely disgusting, it’s perverted,” said the alleged victim, who didn’t want to be identified. “This was a complete plan. He had a bottle of water in his shopping cart and nothing else so his intention was to come in this store and film up girls' dresses."

The woman said when she felt the man was too close she tried to move away but he followed her.

"I stepped to the right like we were doing the tango, and it happened three times,” she said. "I looked at him and said, ‘Excuse me, am I in your way?’ and that's when the friend that I was with noticed the camera on his shoe that he was sticking underneath my dress.”

The victim said the man then smiled at her, paid for his items and walked out.

The woman's friend went after the man, confronted him in the parking lot and tried unsuccessfully to get the phone from him.

The friend was able to use his own cellphone to snap a picture of the man getting into a blue Ford Focus.

Police ran the tag numbers and traced the vehicle to someone in Groveland, but no arrests have been made.
