Baltimore County Police have charged a Westminster man after investigating a complaint of a man taking pictures underneath women's dresses at a York Road Safeway.

On June 1 at 4:22 p.m. Baltimore County Police responded to a Safeway store in the 1000 block of York Road 21204 and met with the store manager. The store manager told police that over the past few weeks, a male had been coming into the store, following female customers, and taking pictures up their dresses or skirts.

Further investigation indicated that on June 1 around 2:30 p.m., a male entered the store carrying a cell phone in his hand. The male was later observed walking past a female, holding his cell phone between her legs, and walking away. He was observed getting into an orange Jeep Wrangler.

Detectives identified this male as 38-year-old David Wayne Sayler of the 3500 block of Baker Road 21157.

When detectives confronted Sayler about the allegations, he admitted to taking photographs and videos under women's skirts and dresses on multiple occasions.

Detectives obtained a search and seizure warrant for the suspect's vehicle. When the vehicle was searched, detectives found several bags of suspected Marijuana that were packed in such a way that suggested that they were intended for distribution.

Sayler was charged with private place - prurient intent, CDS: possession, and CDS: possession with intent to distribute. He was released on $10,000 bail.

During the investigation, detectives learned that Sayler is employed by the Baltimore County Department of Aging.

This incident remains under investigation by the Precinct 6 Investigative Services Team.

Web tip:

One man has been charged following a fight that shattered a window at a York Road Subway store in Precinct 6/Towson early Saturday morning.

Police have charged 26-year-old Jonathan Tyler Pugh of the 200 block of West Seminary Avenue 21093, with disorderly conduct, destruction of property and disturbing the peace. He was released on his own recognizance.

At 1:49 a.m., an officer on foot patrol observed a fight involving two men at Subway store in the 400 block of York Rd 21286. The officer saw Pugh pushing the other man through the Subway's glass window. The officer saw the men hit a table that subsequently hit the window, breaking it.

The fight was captured on a citizen's cell phone video and has been widely circulated.

The officer helped the man that he believed to be the victim from the window and took Pugh into custody. The man who was not arrested was uncooperative and left the scene before his identity could be verified. As a result of the video and other investigation, additional charges may be pending against one or both men.

Both participants received minor injuries during the fight. Both declined transportation to a medical facility.
