On Saturday, June 21st, 2014 at around 1:30PM, Owasso Police were dispatched to the Owasso JC Penny’s store, located at 9056 N 121 E Ave, to what a victim described as an unknown male taking ‘upskirt’ pictures of her in the store. The suspect fled prior to officer’s arrival; however, the victim took a photo of the suspect’s vehicle as he sped from the area. In-store security and Owasso Police reviewed store surveillance video and determined 2 female store employees had also been victimized in the same manner. One of the employees was a juvenile. During the incidents the suspect bent down and extended a camera phone beneath the victim’s skirts. The suspect is described as a white or Hispanic male who was, at the time, wearing a grey shirt with a left breast OU emblem, dark shorts, a red bandana on his head and a red ball cap turned backwards over the bandana. The suspect vehicle is a dark green Chevy S-10 extended cab, step-side pick-up truck with a yellow tool box loose in the bed. A partial tag of the vehicle may be 624??M. Anyone recognizing these descriptions, or with any further information about these incidents, is asked to call Owasso Police at (918)-272-2244 or call the TipLine at (918)-272-COPS (2677). We urge shoppers to be alert and aware of their surroundings at all times. A photo of the suspect vehicle is attached.
