Police: ‘Upskirting’ suspect targeted victims while on the job


DARTMOUTH, Mass. (WPRI) — Dartmouth police have charged a Westport man in connection with an “upskirting” case.

Police said William Raus, 54, is charged with upskirting, which they described as photographing, video taping or electronically surveilling partially nude or nude person or the sexual or other intimate parts of a person around the person’s clothing.

Police said the charges stem from multiple incidents that took place Citizens Bank in Dartmouth, where Raus was employed at the time of the alleged incidents.

Eyewitness News reached out to Citizens Bank to reaction to the charges and received the following statement:

“Citizens takes these types of allegations very seriously. We took immediate action when we became aware of the situation and this individual is no longer employed by the bank. As always, we are fully cooperating with law-enforcement.”
