Delaware County Man Charged with ‘Upskirting’ at Villanova University

A Villanova student was charged with child pornography and invasion of privacy for allegedly spending the last two years secretly recording women with cell phone cameras inside public bathrooms, according to the Delaware County District Attorney's office.

Vincent Kane, 19, of Broomall, was a part-time student at Villanova. He graduated from Cardinal O'Hara High School last year.

The investigation into Kane began Sept. 26 when police found a cell phone camera recording inside a bathroom at Villanova.

Eventually, police executed a search warrant at Kane's house and allegedly found a hard drive with 51,000 images and videos described as "up-skirting."

Much of the pornographic material was created at Villanova, an area high school and the CVS where Kane worked, the district attorney's office said in a release. The high school and the location of the CVS were not identified.

Some of the videos also depicted infants being sexually assaulted.

Kane surrendered to police Wednesday and was arraigned on $50,000 bail. He posted 10 percent bond and was released. His preliminary hearing is Nov. 3.
