    A Massachusetts man previously arrested for allegedly taking photographs up women's skirts, also know as "upskirting," has been taken into custody again in Yarmouth.

    After obtaining warrants for his arrest, police took 50-year-old David Anthony Wong, of New Bedford, into custody on Jan. 5.

    The Cape Cod Times reports Wong pleaded not guilty in Falmouth District Court last week to one count each of photographing an unsuspecting person and possession of child pornography.

    According to the clerk’s office, his bail was set at $10,000 following his arraignment on Jan. 8.

    Authorities say an ongoing investigation has revealed numerous other incidents of upskirting and other secret recordings in several other communities including Falmouth and in Rhode Island.

    Those recordings are allegedly linked to Wong’s work as a self-employed house and business cleaner in Southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island, according to police.

    According to the Cape Cod Times, Wong was arrested back in July after he was allegedly following around two women and a girl under 12 at a women’s clothing store in West Yarmouth with a phone under a dress he was carrying. The store owner alerted police.

    That case is still pending, according to the paper.

    Wong is scheduled to return to court on Feb. 7 for a pretrial hearing in the January case. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
