(WJLA) - Four students at Alexandria's T.C. Williams high school are suspected of using their cell phone cameras to take "upskirt" pictures and videos of female teachers.

The first incident took place during fifth period on May 12, according to search warrant documents obtained by ABC7 News.

A student then later admitted to police he took a picture up his teacher’s skirt as she stood near his desk in the back of the classroom. Several students also witnessed the incident, and one reported it to school administrators.

Then, it happened again on May 15. This time, three students are being accused of a similar incident that took place during a second period class. One of the accused students told police that when he walked into class, he was met by students telling him: “Photo, photo, photo.”

A witness told school administrators who notified police, and an officer has since seized all three students’ phones.

On Tuesday evening, ABC7 tracked down one of the suspects' apartments, but no one answered. However, those at a nearby recreational center had plenty to say: 

"It's crazy. Who would want to do that? It's not normal, you know," said T.C. Williams student Odis Reyes. "It makes people think wrong of our school. Our school's not really like that."

On Wednesday, Alexandria Police released a mugshot of one of the suspects -- Elias Castellon-Diaz. He has been charged with filming a non-consented nude person, and was released on his own recognizance.
