A Lakeview man used his phone to film up the skirt of a woman who was ahead of him on a Loop department store escalator, police say.

John Billhorn, 57, is charged with one misdemeanor count of videotaping through clothes. He was released on a recognizance bond and is due back in court on July 26.

Around 11:45 a.m. on June 28th, a 27-year-old woman flagged down police and reported that she felt Billhorn touch the back of her dress and heard his phone drop as the two rode up an elevator at TJ Maxx, 1 North State Street. The woman told officers that she could see Billhorn’s phone was in camera mode, so she approached the cops for help.

Officers stopped Billhorn who had his phone in his hand, already opened to the photo album, police said. He claimed to have no images of the woman.

But officers said in a report that they found a photo of the victim’s legs, buttocks, underwear, and dress in the deleted images folder of Billhorn’s phone. When the woman identified the person in the image as herself, Billhorn was taken into custody, according to police.
