VIDEO: Man suspected of taking photo under woman's dress turns himself in

FARGO – Fargo police say a man suspected of taking a photo under a woman's dress at a Fargo store turned himself in after seeing his photo on TV.

Police asked for the public’s help to identify a suspect Wednesday morning in a disorderly conduct case from June 13 in which images of the suspect were captured on store video.

Later in the day, Police Lt. Joel Vettel said a 27-year-old Fargo man walked into the Fargo police station to say he had seen his image on TV.

Vettel said the man was interviewed and a report would be forwarded to the Fargo city prosecutor's office for the charge of disorderly conduct.

Vettel said the man’s identity is not being released at this time.

The Fargo city prosecutor’s office said later that the police reports will be going to the Cass County state’s attorney’s office for review of possible charges.

According to a report released by Fargo police, the incident occurred about 3:40 p.m. on June 13.

Witnesses told police a man standing in the check-out line at a local Target store placed his hand, containing a cellphone, underneath the dress of a female victim.

The victim was standing in line directly in front of the suspect, the police report stated.

The suspect then ran out of the store and got into a blue car that was parked in the store’s parking lot, the report stated.
