(KUTV) — A 41-year-old man was arrested at a Salt Lake City mall on Monday evening for allegedly taking inappropriate pictures of women without their knowledge or consent.

The suspect, identified as Stephen G. Grogan, was arrested on suspicion of voyeurism by electronic equipment, concealed or disguised — a class A misdemeanor.

Grogan was at the City Creek Mall at 51 South Main Street, police say, allegedly putting his phone beneath women's skirts to take pictures.

One woman spoke to 2News about the incident, saying that she was in a store on Saturday when Grogan brushed up against her. She reports that he was holding his phone beneath her skirt, with the camera facing upwards.

The woman claims she saw him do the same thing to other women that day.

According to police, Grogan was interviewed after waiving his Miranda rights and confessed to the accusation.

Salt Lake police said he was arrested at Camp Williams. DJ Gibb with the Utah National Guard said Grogan is a member of the New Jersey National Guard and is in Utah to do some training. Gibb said the New Jersey National Guard is aware of the situation.
