SPRINGDALE, OH (FOX19) -

Bond was set at $7,000 Friday for a 43-year-old Mt. Auburn man accused of peering up women's skirts and filming it at the Target store off East Kemper Road.  

Matt Menke immediately drew attention from store employees when he pulled up at the store in a Porsche on Aug. 5.

His distinctive luxury sports car matched the description of one driven by a man who acted suspiciously at the store in October 2014.

He walked around Target recording women but left before police arrived and no offense was discovered, court records show.

This time, however, the store had “six employees walking around near Menke, trying to deter him,” according to police.

He was seen on store video watching the staff and waiting for his chance to “up skirt” women when staff wasn’t around.

He walked behind a 19-year-old woman, knelt behind her and “up skirted” her by using his phone to record a video under her skirt.

He did the same to a 14-year-old girl while her mother stood just on his other side, court records show. 

After a third attempt to up skirt a woman failed, store workers called Springdale police, who talked with him and seized his phone.

Menke then admitted to the crimes and told police he had a “fetish” and was “needing some help,” court records show.

Springdale police say they also found evidence that Matt Menke attempted to shoot upskirt video of his coworkers here at GE Aviation.  Those allegations are being investigated by Evendale police.  

They arrested him Thursday on voyeurism charges.
