Seeking public assistance in voyeurism investigation

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance in relation to a voyeurism case which occurred earlier this month.

At approximately 5:25 p.m., on Wednesday, Aug. 13, 2014, a woman was riding the escalator at the Whitehorn LRT Station located at 3801 36 St. N.E., when she noticed an unknown man using a recording device to film underneath her skirt. She confronted the man, who fled in an unknown direction, before reporting the incident to Calgary Transit Peace Officers.

On Thursday, Aug. 14, 2014, at approximately 7 p.m., CPS was called to the Marlborough LRT Station located at 889 36 St. N.E., by Calgary Transit in connection to the voyeurism case. One man was arrested without incident.

Upon reviewing CCTV footage, it was discovered that he had taken additional images of two other female victims, who remain unidentified.

Investigators are now looking to identify the women and encourage them to come forward. Both victims are believed to have boarded an outbound CTrain at a downtown station, possibly 3rd Street, Centre Street or City Hall on Wednesday, Aug. 13, 2014.

The first victim is described as an Asian woman, 20 to 35 years old, with dark hair pulled into a ponytail. She was wearing a pink and grey short-sleeved dress, sunglasses, a black purse, headphones and was carrying a shopping bag. She disembarked the lead car at the Whitehorn LRT Station at approximately 5:10 p.m.
