Court documents said Majid Hedayati, 66, took photos of the unsuspecting female passenger as he sat across from her on the train line from Grand Central Station to Stamford, Connecticut, on Sept. 23.

A friend of the victim's, who sat beside Hedayati, allegedly noticed him taking the photos as he attempted to capture images of her genital area.

The friend confronted Hedayati and reported him to a conductor, authorities said.

A Metropolitan Transportation Authority Police arrested Hedayati at Grand Central Station on Oct. 13 after an investigation.

He has been charged with unlawful surveillance in the second degree, a felony, and is scheduled to appear in court again on on Dec. 14.
