MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Myrtle Beach police arrested a man Tuesday and charged him with voyeurism following an alleged incident that happened Aug. 9 at an area Bi-Lo store.

According to information from the Myrtle Beach Police Department’s website, Jacob Parrot, 56, was taken into custody at 2 p.m., Tuesday.

The incident report stated an MBPD officer went to the Bi-Lo, located at 1241 38th Ave. North in Myrtle Beach, after receiving a call of a person who used his phone to take photos up a woman’s skirt.

According to the alleged victim, she was shopping and heard what sounded like two photos being taken from a cellphone. When she turned, she reportedly saw the suspect bent down next to her apparently after just taking the pictures, the report stated.

“The victim stated, ‘What are you doing?’ with the offender quickly walking away with the victim following,” the report stated.

The victim followed the suspect to a Ford Explorer, which he entered. She reportedly told the man, “You are sick,” and received no reply as the suspect drove away, according to the report.

She told police she took a picture of the suspect and his vehicle, which showed the license plate number.

Police reportedly discovered the suspect’s vehicle had been used during a similar incident that happened at the Seaboard Street Walmart in April, according to the report. No charges were filed in that instance.
