A monk was arrested on charges of voyeurism after being caught taking an upskirt photo of a girl while riding an escalator, police in Japan said.

Kanagawa Police said that they have arrested 41-year-old Masuhiro Masuda, after being caught taking photos of the 16-year-old girl who was riding on the escalator beside her father.

The incident occurred around 9:30 p.m. on Saturday. Masuda runs a temple in Hadano.

The girl told investigators that she was on the long escalator with her father when she suspected that Masuda, who was behind her, was using his smartphone to record under her skirt.

Her father grabbed Masuda at the top of the escalator and held him down until police arrived. During questioning, Masuda told investigators that he regularly takes upskirt photos of girls because this turns him on.
