Five arrests of so-called “upskirters” who targeted women in public places were made during a spate of warm weather in March, according to the office of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance.
“This is a serious crime with serious consequences,” Vance said in a statement.
“These are not victimless crimes, but damaging invasions of privacy,” he said.
Incidences of “upskirting” increase as seasonal temperatures rise, the prosecutor’s office said.
