Police seek iPad upskirt peeper at Sherman Oaks pet store

March 19, 2013 |  6:27 am

Police are looking for man who used an iPad to peep up a woman's skirt at a Sherman Oaks pet store.

The incident occurred Friday at Puppy and Me on Ventura Boulevard, which shared security videos with KTLA-TV of the suspect following customer Brittanie Weaver around the store.

In the tape, the suspect repeatedly kneels down, pets Weaver’s dog and holds his iPad out. Weaver told the TV station the man made her nervous, and security cameras appeared to confirm what he was up to.

Weaver, 22, a fashion model, said she didn’t want to start a confrontation, so she wrote the store clerk a note, telling her what was happening. After leaving the store, Weaver notified police.

“Police said it’d be hard to track him down,” Weaver says.

So she took matters into her own hands, going online to track the guy down. Using a few clues, including information off an ID badge he was wearing, she believes she found him on a social networking website.

Puppy & Me owner Andrew Mazer says he was happy his surveillance camera collected clear evidence for investigators.

“I’m glad to be helpful — hopefully they can do something about it,” he said.

Weaver said she is working with detectives and wants to press charges. But so far, she does not like what police are telling her. They say it may just be a misdemeanor offense.

“I want him punished to the fullest extent,” Weaver said.
