TITUSVILLE, Fla. - A 27-year-old Cocoa man was arrested Friday in Port St. John, accused of holding his cellphone under a woman’s dress to take upskirt photos, officials said.

After receiving tips from members of the community, Kyle Martin Hnatkiewicz was taken into police custody, the Titusville Police Department said.

Hnatkiewicz was caught in the act on surveillance video, police said.

The incident took place Wednesday at a Publix store on Cheney Highway.

The tips led police to Hnatkiewicz’s apartment, where they found physical evidence, including a computer and clothing seen in the surveillance video, officers said.

Titusville detectives said they are sharing information and evidence with two other jurisdictions for incidents involving the same suspect.

Titusville police accused Hnatkiewicz of doing the same acts at Walmart on Clearlake Road in Cocoa on Wednesday.

Hnatkiewicz was booked into the Brevard County Jail on a charge of video voyeurism, which is a felony, police said. His bond has been set at $2,000.

In his interview with Titusville investigators, Hnatkiewicz confessed to taking the photos at the stores and wrote a letter of apology to the women, police said.

On Saturday, Hnatkiewicz was released on bond at around 3 p.m.
