Buffalo, NY (WKBW) - A Buffalo man is charged with using his iPhone for all the wrong reasons.

The suspect stands accused of sneaking a peek up women's skirts.

28-year-old Daniel Knoble of Buffalo now stands accused of unlawful surveillance and disorderly conduct.

Police say this arrest should serve as a warning -- as technology advances, everyone needs to be more vigilant now than ever.

Jasmine Henderson tells Eyewitness News "It's so scary and you know it's all these iPhones all the things that you can do now. It's so easy to do criminal activities."

That's exactly what police say a Buffalo man used to videotape up women's skirts in Buffalo.

A peeping tom -- caught red-handed last Thursday at the corner of Main Street and Court Street.

Knoble was arrested by Buffalo Police Department's downtown detail -- a special group of officers who focus on crime downtown and making the area feel more stable.

Chief Brian Patterson explains "a security partner did observe this and notify one of our detail officers and indeed this was occuring."

Knoble was arrested in the middle of the afternoon.

Police say he cut a hole in his shoe for his iPhone and videotaped from there.

Patterson explains "He did affix it in a way that allowed him to videotape it while walking and standing near people."
