POQUOSON, Va. - A man is accused of taking pictures up a teenage girl's skirt at a local church, without her knowing.

On March 5, police were called to Trinity United Methodist Church off Poquoson Ave.

A teenage girl told officers a man allegedly used a cell phone to take inappropriate photos up her skirt.

According to a search warrant, 21-year-old William Don Suave Jr., took numerous photos of the teenage girl without her knowledge or consent. The teenager told police it happened during Sunday school class.
