A man in Sydney has been charged after police confiscated his mobile phone and allegedly found several still and video 'upskirt' recordings on trains.

Officers started investigating after two female passengers on a Campbelltown-bound train notified them that a man was allegedly taking inappropriate pictures of them.

One of the women was able to take a photo of the man and later handed it to police.

Police Transport Command officers later allegedly recognised the man at Glenfield Railway Station. He was stopped, spoken to and searched. Officers allegedly located the mobile phone which was seized for further examination.

The mobile phone allegedly showed several inappropriate images and video recordings including that of an indecent assault and other 'upskirting' incidents, including the one which allegedly involved the two women who reported the man.

On Saturday, the 22-year-old man was arrested at his home in Campbelltown.

He was taken to Campbelltown Police Station and charged with nine offences, including six counts of behaving in an offensive manner in or near a public place.

The man was refused bail to appear before Parramatta local court on Sunday.
