Davis police cited a 45-year-old San Francisco man Sunday who allegedly used a concealed camera to record women underneath their skirts in the downtown area.

Peter Douglas Johnson was contacted by police at about 12:15 p.m. after someone reported he was “carrying a handbag in a strange manner while walking past females,” Lt. Paul Doroshov said.

As they questioned Johnson in the area of Third and F streets, officers found a digital camcorder — a Hero GoPro — hidden in an upright position in his handbag, Doroshov said.

“Based on their preliminary investigation, officers suspect Johnson was using the digital camcorder to obtain a recording angle under women’s skirts,” Doroshov said. He added that a 27-year-old employee of a local business was identified as one alleged victim.

Johnson was booked on a misdemeanor charge of using a concealed camera to film under a person’s clothing and released with a notice to appear in court.
