Winnipeg police are looking for a man they claim used a smartphone to record under a woman's skirt at Polo Park Shopping Centre.

It happened shortly before 3 p.m. on Feb. 26, when a 23-year-old woman was finishing her break from her job at the mall. According to police, she was heading up the escalator to the second floor when a man followed her and stood close behind.

The woman moved forward to make some distance but the man moved closer again, police said. Then the woman saw him holding the phone under her skirt.

She confronted the man, who ran from the area.

The suspect is described being about 20-21 years old, about 5-foot-11 with a medium build, and weighing 160-170 pounds. He has short, black curly hair and was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt with a white shirt underneath.
