An Inwood man was arrested Thursday afternoon in North Lawrence for taking pictures of a woman under her skirt.

According to detectives, Jose Santana, 20, of 63 Wanser Avenue, an employee of KolSave Market at 11 Lawrence Lane, was helping a woman put groceries into her car when she felt his hand between her legs.  A subsequent investigation by responding officers determined that the defendant had placed his cell phone under the woman’s skirt.

The subject was placed into custody without incident. He is charged with unlawful surveillance, second degree.

A further investigation by detectives revealed that Santana had multiple videos of the same nature involving other victims on his phone. It is believed that these videos were also taken at the market.

Because of the possibility that others in the community were assaulted in this manner, the fourth squad of the Nassau County police is asking people with information about this or other assaults to call (516) 573-6453 or Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.  All callers will remain anonymous.

Of course I double-checked with google, and it confirmed that I a, correct. You may have ment Wanser Avenue, which is a street very closr yo my home in Inwood.
