A mum claims to have caught a “creep” who was secretly filming her for 10 minutes onboard a flight.

Anueta Madison-Vanderbuilt, from Melbourne in Australia, shared footage of the incident, captured on a plane from the city to the country’s Gold Coast.

In it, she bravely confronts the man before getting him to delete the footage.

Ms Madison-Vanderbuilt posted the video TikTok with the caption: “This creep on a flight was secretly recording me for 10 minutes and I caught him.”

In it, she calmly tells him: “Excuse me, I’m gonna give you one chance to delete it or I’m going to tell police when we get off the plane.

“Deleted? Now go to your deleted folder, find it and delete it. Show me.”

The man does exactly as Ms Madison-Vanderbuilt says before she tells him: “You’re a f*****g piece of s**t, I hope you know that.”

He then protests by saying “it was for 10 seconds”.

Ms Madison-Vanderbuilt was helped off the plane by Queensland Police, whom she thanked for standing up for her.

However, she claimed that cops were unable to arrest and charge the man as he did not assault her or film her in a private place.

She later discussed the incident on Instagram and posted: “CREEP ON A PLANE!

“If you think what he did isn’t that bad you’re part of the problem!

“And there is a MASSIVE difference between choosing what someone posts online compared to someone secretly filming you!”

After they landed, the passengers were told to stay in their seats.

Ms Madison-Vanderbuilt then got up and asked the surrounding aisles: “Would anyone here be OK with this man this stranger recording you without consent?”

An air hostess said the Australian federal police were on their way, at which point the other passengers departed.

Ms Madison-Vanderbuilt claims the staff member told her to delete the video, but she ignored the instruction.

She continued: “If someone you know has admitted to doing the wrong thing, say something. Say you're a f*****g d******d, call them out.

"(Not saying anything) is how this behaviour progresses and keeps going. If they think that's OK they will go further and further and further.

"What if he's going to do that to younger girls, your sister, your aunt, your mother, your daughter."

Ms Madison-Vanderbuilt said no men offered to help during the incident, but several women on the flight comforted her.
