Yarmouth Police: Man arrested for “upskirting” in August arrested again

David Anthony Wong

YARMOUTH – Yarmouth Police report that the man that they arrested in August 2017 for sexual crimes involving ‘upskirting’ has been arrested again and is in custody.

Working diligently and painstakingly since his original arrest, the Yarmouth Police Department Detective Division has obtained several search warrants and seized multiple computers and other electronic devices.

The ongoing investigation revealed numerous other incidents of upskirting and other secret recordings in several other communities including Falmouth and in Rhode Island apparently tied in to him working as a self-employed cleaner cleaning at various homes and businesses all over southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Yarmouth Police Detectives and Proactive Anti-Crime Unit Officers working closely with Falmouth Police Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for the suspect.

On Friday, January 5, 2018, David Anthony Wong, 50, of New Bedford –who was out on bail pending trial from YPD’s previous charges–was tracked down and arrested again by members of the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section in New Bedford.

Wong was transported to Yarmouth Police Department Headquarters and he refused to cooperate and speak to Police Officers.

He was subsequently transferred to the Falmouth District Court and arraigned on the new sex crime charges in Falmouth District Court.

Wong is currently in custody in the Barnstable County Correctional Facility in Bourne on $10,000 cash bail.

The case remains active and ongoing and additional charges are expected.

Mr. Wong had been hired to clean hundreds of homes and businesses throughout Southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

If you believe you may be a victim of Mr. Wong, please contact Yarmouth Police Department lead investigator Eric H. Nuss immediately at enuss@yarmouth.ma.us
