Campbell Co., VA - A recent arrest is a huge wake-up call for women everywhere.
Ryan Wogoman, 24, is accused of using his cell phone to get video underneath women's skirts at stores in our area. He is facing three counts of unlawful filming in Lynchburg and two counts in Campbell County.
Investigators say after seeing a surveillance photo of himself in the media, Wogoman turned himself in and confessed. They say Wogoman would find his victims at multiple stores – including the Kroger, Old Navy and Walmart on Wards Road.
According to investigators, Wogoman would approach females, follow them around and then put his cell phone under their skirt. One victim found out only because the phone hit her leg and then another women nearby told her what had just happened.
"There were several things, overt actions that should have drawn some attention to the individual, but they were shopping and just oblivious to it," said investigator Robert New with the Campbell County Sheriff's Office.
Investigator New says this is a huge reminder to be aware of your surroundings, no matter where you are.
Unlawful filming is a class one misdemeanor. Wogoman could spend up to a year in jail for each count.
