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

Earlier today, police asked for the public’s help to identify a suspect in a disorderly conduct case from June 13 in which images of the suspect were captured on store video.

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.

The man was interviewed and a report was forwarded to the Fargo City Prosectutor's Office for the charge of disorderly conduct. Vettel said the man's identity was not being released, as per department policy in such situations.

According to a report released by Fargo police, the incident inquestion occurred about 3:40 p.m. on June 13. Witnesses told police a man standing in the checkout line at a local retail store placed his hand, containing a cell phone, underneath the dress of a female victim.

The victim was standing in line directly in front of the suspect. It is believed the suspect used the cell phone to take a picture underneath the victim’s dress.

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