Man took upskirt photos in Sanford store, police say

Harold Davis arrested on voyeurism charge

SANFORD, Fla. – A 55-year-old Sanford man was arrested on allegations of taking upskirt photos of a woman who was shopping inside a Goodwill store.

Harold Davis was arrested Monday on charges of voyeurism and disorderly intoxication.

Sanford police said a 21-year-old woman was shopping at the Goodwill at 300 E. 3rd St. when Davis approached her, leaned down and pointed his cellphone under her dress.

The woman said she began hitting Davis and screaming for help, according to police.

Harold tried to run out of the store, but he was restrained by several people, who held him until officers arrived, police said.

"He took a picture of a lady up her dress," a customer who called 911 said. "He's being held. They're trying to hold him because he's trying to wiggle up out of here."

Sanford police said surveillance video shows Davis walking into the store and heading to the men's section before going to the women's clothing area. Davis is then seen pointing his cellphone under the woman's dress, police said.

Davis was questioned by officers and requested an attorney, police said. He also declined to a search of his phone, police said.

Goodwill released a statement Tuesday, saying: "At Goodwill, we continually strive to provide a safe and pleasant environment for our shoppers and donors to support our mission of job training and placement for Central Floridians in need. We are distressed by the incident that occurred in our Sanford retail store, and we are grateful to the police for their timely response. We want to let the public know that the store is open and operating as normal."

Davis was arrested and taken to jail.
