    BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. - Titusville police have arrested a man accused of holding a cellphone under a woman’s dress inside a Titusville Publix on Wednesday.

    Police arrested 27-year-old Kyle Hnatkiewicz on Friday. Police said another Publix shopper alerted the woman to the man holding the camera.

    After Titusville police posted a surveillance photo on social media, numerous tips helped them make an arrest, police said. Investigators said Hnatkiewicz was apologetic after the arrest.

    Police did not say if he is the same person behind two similar incidents in Brevard County this week.

    The Brevard County Sheriff's Office took a similar report about an incident at a Merritt Island Target the same day as the Titusville Publix complaint.

    On Tuesday, police from Titusville and Cocoa said the man who upskirted a woman at the Publix matches the description of a man who appeared to follow a woman around at the Walmart on Clearlake Road in Cocoa earlier that morning, drop his phone, then try to take a picture up the woman’s skirt.
