A man who secretly managed to record video under women’s skirts has been arrested, admitting that his action was “the result of childhood trauma”.

On December 17, police began hunting a man who visited various universities and schools in Bangkok to take videos of female students' underwear to publish on the Internet.

The man, identified as Pathompong, 28, allegedly recorded 1,000 videos and was eventually arrested on December 18.

He confessed that he took them from December 14 to 16 and then posted them on his Facebook page, which went on to receive as many as 10,000 views.

“Interested” individuals later resorted to sharing techniques via Telegram on how to go about filming women’s underwear in public.

Pathompong claimed women bullied him since he was a child and has a record of mental issues.

He will face charges of harassing underage girls, publishing obscene content, causing disturbance or bringing shame to others and violating the Computer Crimes Act.
