A Bryan man was arrested last week on accusations he aimed his cellphone up a woman’s dress and recorded video while she shopped at a local store.
According to College Station police, Gerren Keith Young, 34, who has a history of similar arrests, was taken into custody Aug. 9 in connection to the June incident.
Authorities said on the afternoon of June 22, authorities responded to a store on South Texas Avenue after a woman said she felt something brush against her leg and saw Young holding a cellphone toward the bottom of her dress. The woman told police the phone’s flash was on, indicating to her it had been recording under her dress.
The woman and her family confronted Young, who admitted he had been recording video but said he would delete the footage. He left before police arrived, but a photo of him and his vehicle had been taken before he left. Police were able to identify him because of previous arrests.
Court records show he pleaded guilty to two of the same charges after he was accused of taking pictures of women’s buttocks without their permission in separate incidents in 2017. He was sentenced to 18 months in prison on those charges, records show, and was released. He was convicted of improper visual recording in 2013 in connection to a 2011 incident and sentenced to eight months on that charge, records show.
He faces a new charge of invasive visual recording, a state jail felony punishable by up to two years in a state jail. He was released from the Brazos County Jail on $5,000 bond.
