Deputies have arrested a man suspected of video voyeurism at a Tampa mall Monday afternoon.

Cameras captured Johnathan Rogers, 31, taking photos up the skirts of victims at University Square Mall near USF. A HCSO report said the Rogers was standing behind victims at Sears and Macy's and using his phone to take the photos without their knowledge.

Mall security confronted Rogers, who apparently admitted to one of the offenses through what authorities are calling a "spontaneous utterance."

As of early Tuesday, officials were processing a search warrant to retrieve information from the phone. Video evidence of the alleged crimes was not immediately available. 

Rogers was initially charged with two counts of video voyeurism.
