New York man accused of snapping 36 upskirt photos of women on Newbury Street in Boston

A New York man faces charges that he took upskirt photos of women going in and out of a rather posh Newbury Street chain clothing store in Boston last summer.

Police report the 49-year-old suspect’s phone “captured many images of the private areas of unsuspecting women.”

Damon Deteso, of Saratoga Springs, New York, but originally from Massachusetts, will face a total of 36 charges — just listing them all took up half of the 20-page complaint filed in December. He is set to be arraigned Wednesday at Boston Municipal Court Central Division.

Police say that Deteso on Sept. 24, 2021, took candid photographs of 36 women. He either secretly followed them up Newbury and Fairfield streets and surreptitiously recorded them with his phone hanging half out of his backpack, a charging document states, or by sitting on the stairs outside a clothing chain store in the 200-block of Newbury Street.

Sitting outside the store, police allege, he placed the cellphone on the steps and captured women who had to step over it as they went up to or down from shopping at the store.

Investigators allege that 21 of these photographs or recordings successfully captured images of the women’s private parts — that means 21 counts of secret sexual surveillance. A further 15 shots failed to capture the sights Deteso was allegedly after and are being charged as attempted crimes.
