Videotapes of at least 18 additional victims have been found on the cell phone camera of a man arrested May 31 and charged with four counts of video voyeurism.
The suspect – Michael Donson, 25, of 1821 E. Hatton St., Pensacola – was arrested after he used the camera on his cell phone to take videos underneath women’s dresses in various retail and convenience stores.
Two women notified police on May 21 after they saw Donson trying to use his camera phone to photograph beneath their dresses while they were walking around in Ross Dress for Less in Cordova Mall. Detectives Chad Willhite and Shannan Briarton believe Donson made the videos between May 7 and May 21. The investigation initially identified four of the victims. Willhite said 26 videos were found on the suspect’s cell phone after he was arrested.
Willhite said Donson is believed to have targeted adult women who were wearing dresses and in at least one case he videotaped a woman wearing short shorts.
Anyone who recognizes the suspect and believes he may have tried to videotape underneath their clothes is asked to contact Detective Chad Willhite at 435 – 1972 or Detective Shannan Briarton at 435 – 1978.
