'Man Bun Creeper' Accused Of Taking Upskirt Photos In A Florida Publix

The suspect, Brian Haseloff, has denied taking the photos.

Police in St. Petersburg, Florida, have caught the man they suspect is the "man bun creeper,” a man accused of taking upskirt cell phone photos of women at a Publix supermarket.

Brian Augustus Haseloff, 35, of Tampa was arrested on Tuesday. He faces a felony charge of video voyeurism and was booked on $5,000 bond.

According to an arrest affidavit obtained by Oxygen.com, Haseloff "used his cell phone to record under the skirts of two female victims while inside of Publix” on April 3. Police said a woman saw one of the incidents, noticed and notified the supermarket management, who reviewed their surveillance footage. Both incidents were caught on camera, and police released the footage on their Facebook in a post in which they referred to the then-unidentified man as the “man bun creeper.” That footage led to tips, which helped police catch Haseloff.

In one of the instances, the footage shows a man, allegedly Haseloff, standing behind a woman in a checkout aisle. Police wrote that he "pretended to look at items on the bottom shelf" and "holds his cell phone out so that it could record under the victim’s skirt.” The woman seemed oblivious to what was happening to her. Haseloff also allegedly "can be seen approaching a victim in the dairy section. He gets behind her and pretends to drop something. He bends down and it looks as if he is using his cell phone to take pictures of the victim under her skirt.”

Haseloff denied taking the photos. Police said he admitted to deleting about 10 photos from his phone before meeting with police. It is unclear if Haseloff has a lawyer who can speak on his behalf at this time. According to a LinkedIn account that appears to belong to Haseloff, he works as an architect.
