Patrick Bowdoin of Fairfield Avenue is accused of using his cellphone to take photographs and videos of women under their skirts without their knowledge or consent, according to a police report.

Police launched an investigation in December after a victim contacted the department, the report said. The police department obtained a warrant that included multiple forensic exams and searches of cellphones and computers that Bowdoin owned, it said.

Ultimately, police identified 12 incidents of voyeurism that took place in New Canaan, Norwalk and Stamford, the report said. Police withheld details on the locations of those incidents, saying that information would identify victims.

Bowdoin was charged with 12 counts of voyeurism with malice, a Class C or D felony under state law.

He was released on $25,000 bond and scheduled to appear March 26 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
