On Friday, March 22, 2013, Officers responded to the TJ Maxx store, 2817 Park Ave, Tustin, CA, reference a suspect photographing and video recording up the skirts of female customers in the store.  One victim indicated the suspect approached her while shopping, maneuvered himself to a position where the victim’s movement was blocked between a store pillar and the suspect.  The victim felt confined and the suspect used his phone to record up her skirt. The victim was able to get away and called Tustin PD.

Tustin Police arrested Brian Joseph Eastman.  Eastman is a 25 year old resident of Irvine and currently works in Santa Ana. During the initial investigation, officers located several secretly recorded videos and digital photographs of several unidentified women at various locations.  The locations appear to be retail stores and residential locations.

The video evidence we have contains footage of the unidentified victim’s faces as well as the indecent footage.  We are not releasing this footage at this time.

The Tustin Police Department is seeking media and community assistance in locating anyone who feels they may be one of Eastman’s unidentified victims or anyone who may have seen Eastman at any businesses throughout Orange County.

Anyone with information should contact Detective Natalie Nguyen at (714) 573-3253.
