BATON ROUGE, La. — A man who authorities say attempted to record video under women’s dresses at a Louisiana church has been arrested.

WAFB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2ssxOtD ) 40-year-old Blake Williamson was arrested after a victim reported him twice, on June 11 and June 18. The victim told police Williamson used a camera attached to a briefcase to try to record video under her skirt, and said that he had attempted to do so several times over the last two months.

A probable cause report submitted by the Baton Rouge Police Department says a witness recorded an attempt. The report says that Williamson told police upon arrest that he had been using the briefcase camera since May.

He has been charged with video voyeurism. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
