A dog walker used his phone to take “upskirt” pictures of a woman as she walked in the Loop, according to prosecutors.

Police said a driver flagged them down near the 400 block of South State around 1 p.m. on Sept. 25 after the motorist saw a man taking pictures under a woman’s dress.

The cops kept an eye on the man and then saw him lower his phone under the woman’s dress as he walked a dog, according to their report.

Officers said they found “multiple” photographs of the woman’s undergarments and body on the phone belonging to  23-year-old Jamier Wheeler. At least one video was also found, according to court records..

The woman, also 23, said she didn’t know Wheeler, but she did notice him following very closely behind her. She thought she had lost him when she crossed the street, the woman said.

Police listed Wheeler’s occupation as “dog walker” on his arrest report.

Prosecutors charged Wheeler with one misdemeanor count of videotaping through clothes. He was released on a recognizance bond per court rules and is due back in court on Oct. 25.

Earlier this year, a Lakeview attorney received 18 months of court supervision after pleading guilty to recording under the dress of a woman who was in front of him on a Loop department store escalator.
