WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (NBC) -
Connecticut police said a man was caught red handed looking up women's skirts at a shopping mall thanks to a woman chasing after him.
Husein Ahmetovic pretended to be shopping but was allegedly using a small digital video camera to shoot up skirts.
Police said an alert shopper noticed him with a camera on the ground behind a woman and that's when she took matters into her own hands.
"He just took off running and she chased him through the mall and out of the mall, down the hill, across New Britain Avenue all the way to Sears. That's a good cross country run," said Lt. Stephen Estes of the West Hartford Police Department.
Police added that the entire time woman was chasing the suspect, she was screaming at people to stop the man while she called 911.
"She is also screaming to all of the passerbys, 'Hey, call the police, call the police, call the police. This guy is filming women up their skirts.' So we got her call and we already have officers rolling," Estes said.
"The fact that she chased him and she was not being a victim you know what I'm saying. She was like, no, this ends now! I give her a lot of credit," said Diane Wilson.
Police seized the camera, a battery and a video card with more than 60 clips of 30 different victims. The suspect has been charged with 30 voyeurism felonies.
