An Alexandria man accused of filming women in changing rooms at malls in Fairfax County faces three additional charges.

Fairfax County police arrested 39-year-old Mumtaz Rauf on Christmas Eve for unlawfully filming a minor at the Forever 21 in Fair Oaks Mall.

Since their investigation began, police say three more victims have come forward - two adults, and one juvenile.

Police say Rauf will now face an additional felony charge, and two misdemeanors.

He has since been jailed in lieu of $7,000 bond.

The initial investigation uncovered more than 100 videos secretly recorded in fitting rooms at Forever 21 and H&M at Fair Oaks Mall and at the Old Navy located at Tyson's Corner Center, according to detectives.

Investigators said the videos were recorded between December 15 and Christmas Eve.

Since Rauf's arrest, police have been asking women who may have been victims to step forward.
Rauf was caught after a victim noticed a black device that she thought might be a cellphone or camera pointing down from a wall of the dressing room at Forever 21, according to police.

An employee told police that a man identified as Rauf was seen leaving the store, heading into the mall.

When police found Rauf in the fitting room at an H&M location in the mall, they discovered that he had a number of items including a pinhole camera, black tape, and a Bluetooth transmitter that police believe he was using to gather video and pictures from various fitting rooms.
