A Port Washington man has been arrested on felony charges after authorities said he was caught sticking his iPhone under a woman’s skirt and recording video as she walked up a staircase at a Manhattan subway station.

Karl Sholder, 32, was booked on a felony second-degree unlawful surveillance charge after the Monday afternoon incident at the Union Square subway station, the NYPD said. He was released without bail after an arraignment Tuesday at Manhattan Criminal Court.

An NYPD officer assigned to the Transit Bureau saw Sholder walking behind the unidentified female victim, who was wearing a knee-high flowing dress, as she walked up the stairs and was “holding his iPhone directly underneath the woman’s dress,” according to a criminal complaint.

The officer said the iPhone was in video mode at the time and that he “saw [Sholder] press the screen when he approached the top of the stairs in order to stop the phone from recording video.” When the officer approached him, cops said Sholder still had his iPhone in his hand and the phone was “still on video mode.”

Authorities said the woman did not know she was being recorded and did not give Sholder consent to do so.
