A Greenwich man is accused of taking photos up the skirt of an unsuspecting passenger as she was traveling on the Metro-North railroad.
Majid Hedayati, 66, of Riverside, was charged in New York with unlawful surveillance in the second degree, according to the office of Miriam Rocah, the district attorney for Westchester County, New York.
Officials said Hedayati was traveling on Metro-North from Grand Central Station to Stamford on Sept. 23 when he sat down across from a woman who was wearing a skirt and used his cellphone to take photos underneath her skirt.
The victim’s friend, who was sitting directly next to Hedayati, saw him taking the photos, confronted him and reported him to a conductor, according to the Westchester County District Attorney.
