A Metropolitan Museum of Art employee could face up to four years in prison for upskirt filming multiple women, including a minor.

Fred Caruso was caught by a police officer as the 62-year-old filmed up the dress of a teen girl on a subway platform in New York City on April 27. Police discovered evidence that Caruso had inappropriately filmed six women without them knowing, reported the New York Post.

The museum staffer pleaded not guilty to “six counts of felony unlawful surveillance and one count of endangering the welfare of a child,” reported the New York Post.

Caruso claims that he has sneaked upskirt videos of more than 50 women, according to court papers cited by the New York Post.

“It’s become an obsessive behavior in the last couple of years,” Caruso reportedly told the law enforcement officers who arrested him.

Caruso has worked as a collections manager in the Met’s Greek and Roman department since 2015, according to his LinkedIn account. He has worked for the museum since 1995, according to LinkedIn.

Caruso reportedly took an iPhone photo up the skirt of a woman in front of the Met. (RELATED: State Agency ‘Could Not Substantiate’ Claims, Closes Investigation Of Larry Nassar’s Former Boss)

“I’m completely remorseful and mortified by my behavior,” Caruso reportedly said, according to the New York Post. “I’m sorry. This is going to ruin my life. I’m married.”
