Officials Arrest 70-Year-Old Man Accused of Photographing Women on VTA

Santa Clara Sheriff’s Deputies arrested a 70-year-old man who is being accused of riding on the VTA and taking unwanted photos of a 16-year-old girl on Friday.

Officials arrested Florencio Hernandez Palmo, who they believe has been photographing women over a three-year period. Now he faces a charge of annoying or molesting a minor.

“To be honest, I think it’s disgusting for guys to be doing that,” said San Jose resident, Relaine Jamorabon. “Especially older people on younger kids.”

Investigators are asking anyone who witnesses issues such as this one to call them immediately.

No further information was immediately available.
