A voyeur who used a mirror and mobile phone to film women on public toilets has been sentenced to 250 hours’ community service.

Apostolos Kipouros, 19 years old, was discovered by women at Woden Westfield shopping centre in Canberra earlier this year.

On one occasion, while a woman was on the toilet, she noticed a mirror and phone coming from under the cubicle wall. She screamed and ran off, and another woman also ran out of a different cubicle. Security were called and Kipouros was found still in the cubicle between where the two women had been. He had a black hood pulled over his head and a phone and tablet with him.

Apostolos Kipouros was interviewed by police and later admitted to filming the women; something he said he’d done to impress his friends. He said he’d filmed women in his homeland of Greece before coming to Australia.

Police examined his phone and discovered more videos.

Kipouros conduct was described by prosecutor Phoebe Burgoyne-Scutts as “alarming behaviour to say the least”.

His lawyer Paul Edmonds said his client understood the seriousness of the crimes and recognised he needed counselling.

He said the teenager had no criminal history, a supportive family, was studying, working and had no drug, alcohol, or mental health issues.

Mr Morrison sentenced Kipouros to 250 hours’ community service and a two-year good behaviour order.
