LOGAN — A suspected serial peeping Tom has been arrested and charged in Cache County.

Jordan Michael Larsen, 35, of Logan, was charged Thursday in 1st District Court with three counts of voyeurism by electronic equipment, a class A misdemeanor. A pretrial conference is scheduled for Tuesday.

Larsen is accused of using his cellphone to take pictures of unsuspecting women at a mall dressing room and up the dresses of women at Utah State University, possibly by hiding his phone in his shoe.

According to charging documents, two of the alleged incidents happened Sept. 21. That's the day employees at Bliss in the Cache Valley Mall, 1300 N. Main, spotted a man holding his cellphone over the top of a dressing room, apparently filming a girl who was changing.

After Logan police released surveillance video from that incident, police at Utah State contacted them and said they believed the same man was wanted for an incident on campus.

On Aug. 24, a woman was at the cashier's office at the Taggart Student Center and a man was behind her. When an employee asked if he could help the man, he said no and ran off. When police later reviewed surveillance tape of the incident, they saw the man was positioning his right foot between the legs of the woman, who was wearing a dress.

Larsen was originally believed to possibly be a Utah State student because of his young looks, the fact he was spotted at USU, and because he was wearing a Utah State T-shirt at the mall incident. The man's home address listed in court documents is about five blocks from the mall.

Outside of speeding tickets, Larsen has no prior criminal history in Utah, according to court records.
