ORLANDO, Fla. (FOX 35 WOFL) - The University of Central Florida (UCF) says that with the 'See Something, Say Something' mentality, they were able to arrest a video voyeur.

The woman told police that she was walking down the aisle with her 10-year-old daughter when she saw this activity. She alert security and UCFPD officers responded and interviewed both parties.
Wiggins told police that he did not take any photos or videos and turned his phone over to police.

Other similar videos were also found on the phone.
Wiggins, of Wildwood, was arrested in Alachua County on charges of video voyeurism to a child under 16 and video voyeurism to an adult victim. He has no affiliation to UCF.
Detectives say that anyone who thinks that they might have been impacted should call 407-823-5555.
