Appalled father shares disgusting video of repairman sniffing underwear of his daughters aged three and five
In the video, one can see the unnamed repairman going back and forth from his work area to the side of the room where the toddler's hampers were.
A disgusting video of a repairman caught sniffing dirty underwear of two toddler girls in their house has gone viral, with police investigating the incident.
The yet unidentified repairman was hired by a moving company to fix the floors of a Playa Vista family home in California, and while doing so, he was caught on a Nest Cam sniffing the dirty underwear of the two toddlers and then stuffing it in his pocket.
Jason Cooper, father of the two girls, said that he was appalled when he saw what the middle-aged repairman was doing to the underwear of his three and five-year-old daughters.
Cooper added that his wife had found the guy creepy since the beginning but they hired him anyway to conduct the repair to their home, where they had moved recently, on Wednesday morning. According to KTLA Cooper said, "I would have never imaged that somebody would do this." He added that his wife, "thought he might have been a little bit creepy, but I didn't catch any red flags."
Cooper was in another room while the repairman was doing his dirty deed.

In the video, one can see the repairman going back and forth from his work area to the side of the room where the toddler's hampers were kept. "I saw him put his hands in their hamper, pick up some of their clothes and at one point, I saw him on the video putting something in his pocket. It looked like it was my daughter's underwear," he said to ABC. "You see him turn back around, put the underwear in the hamper, and before he does that, you see what looks like he is taking one last big breath in," he added.
Cooper even complained to the moving company that had hired him and filed a police report with LAPD after he saw the footage. It is not yet clear if any crime save for the theft of underwear was committed but Cooper wants to know if the guy had a criminal record.
A representative of the Los Angeles Police Department told Yahoo Lifestyle that the man has not been arrested and the incident is being investigated as a petty theft, a misdemeanor.
"This gentleman violated a five-year-old and three-year-old's privacy, my family's privacy. Obviously, my wife and I are really distraught over this and we want other people to know," Cooper added.

Cooper even went a step forward and called the repairman directly, who was shocked upon hearing that he was caught on camera in his reprehensible act. Cooper even told him that he planned to share the video with news outlets and on social media too. He seems to believe that the repairman was going to apologize, but Cooper cut him off saying that he did not want to hear anything that he had to say.
"From now on, I can tell you that my wife and I will never let anybody else in this house without us standing by their side until they leave," Cooper concluded.
