New York City police have arrested a man accused of taking a cell phone picture under a subway rider's skirt. The woman used her own phone to take a picture of the suspect so authorities could track him down.

The unidentified 28-year-old woman says she was victimized last month while climbing stairs to an elevated station in upper Manhattan.

She followed the suspect onto a train, took his picture, then e-mailed it to police and filed a report.

Aaron Olivieri was arraigned Wednesday on misdemeanor charges of attempted unlawful surveillance, attempted sexual abuse and harassment.

His lawyer did not immediately return a call for comment on Friday.
