Upskirt suspect arrested after father jumps into action

The Man who allegedly took inappropriate pictures of shoppers at a Target in California charged with violation of privacy after a father’s actions helped lead to his arrest.

A father took matters into his own hands after he caught a shift on the occasion of his 15-year-old daughter around a Target in California last week.

Jorge A. Ibarra, Jr., 29, was arrested on Wednesday, Aug. 1 on “suspicion of violation of privacy”, after he was allegedly captured on video surveillance taking upskirt photos of girls at a Target store in Cypress.

Ismael Duarte was in the store shopping with his 15-year-old daughter and his wife on Tuesday, July 31, when he said that he saw Ibarra act strangely. Surveillance video captured Duarte the approach of Ibarra as Duarte says he realized what the suspect was doing. Duarte chased the suspect out of the Goal and tackled him. He was able to snap a photo of Ibarra in his car before he fled.

“My daughter, and the girl who was actually getting their picture taken without her is known — that is what got me,” Duarte told KTLA.

The father said that he wished that he could have done more.

“I’m p—ed off that I don’t do more than I did, but I wish I would have, because I am so angry,” Duarte told FOX11.

Duarte said he contacted the police and provided them with the photo of the suspect in the car, which led to the arrest. However, the father felt the security team at Goal would have done nothing if he is not in.

“The only thing they did was behind, and that is very disappointing,” said Duarte of the security team.

Target issued a statement saying that it would help the police with all the necessary information.

“On Target, the safety and security of our guests is very important to us and we have no tolerance for this behavior in one of our stores,” the statement read. “Immediately after learning of these recent incidents, our teams have called the police to investigate, and shared video footage with them. We continue to contribute to the enforcement of the law in ways that support their research.”

Ibarra was booked into the Orange County Jail on $25,000 bail.
