A man was allegedly taking pictures up the skirts of young girls in a hardware store in Queensland, Australia.

“When they were leaving the store, the eight year-old girl’s brother disclosed to his mother that he’d noticed a man taking photographs with his mobile phone of his sister,” said Detective Emma Novosel.
According to news, several disturbing images taken of multiple children were uncovered on his phone,. Several were of the eight-year-old.
“An examination of that phone identified a further series of photos of seven young girls and teenagers and they were all taken around the same time at that Bunnings location,” said Novosel.
According to 7news, the man has been charged with indecent treatment of a child and possessing child exploitation material.
The other children in the photos were between the ages of five and 15.
