Man, 49, Arrested For Recording Up Woman’s Skirt At Glendale Galleria

GLENDALE (CBS) — A former volleyball coach at Pasadena City College was arrested Monday on suspicion of recording up the skirt of a woman on a Glendale Galleria escalator.

John Puncel, 49, was immediately arrested after a police officer said he witnessed the incident.

Authorities said Puncel pulled away as the officer tried to grab him. One of the officers suffered a cut and complained of pain as a result of his struggle with Puncel, police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.

The cell phone camera, which was still recording when police arrested Puncel, showed his fingers, then the woman’s legs and buttocks, according to police reports.

Puncel was arrested on suspicion of possessing nude photographs of a girl under 18 simulating sexual conduct, secretly recording under the clothing of another person without consent, battery on a police officer and resisting arrest.
