A Montgomery County man, arrested earlier this year for stealing the underwear of a woman he was allegedly stalking, was charged this week with using a hidden camera to film up the skirt of another woman at the King of Prussia Plaza. Kornwell Chan, of Dresher, was spotted at the Plaza near Lord & Taylor on Sunday, May 13, by an undercover officer who noted Chan's resemblance to a suspect wanted in a up-skirting incident at the nearby J.C. Penney in September 2011, said Risa Vetri Ferman, the Montgomery County District Attorney.

Build a better condom, A.V.K. Reddy figured, and the world will beat a path to your door. And so the physician and inventor came up with one of the oddest creations in the history of contraception - the female bikini condom. It looks like something you'd find on a shelf at the local porn store: a pair of beige latex bikini panties with a rolled-up condom built into the crotch. During sex, the condom part unfurls and - voila! - the woman has her own instant protection against pregnancy and AIDS.

Larry Machalski says his next- door neighbor on Lawndale Avenue was anything but neighborly. Machalski, a Holmesburg Prison correctional officer, said Kathy Vanhorn, 35, threatened to burn down his house last May 28, after falsely accusing him of having some relatives and a neighbor arrested on various charges. "I didn't know what the heck she was talking about," testified Machalski, 39, before a jury convicted Vanhorn of terroristic threats and harassment. Sentence was deferred by Common Pleas Judge Genece E. Brinkley.

It might be the most successful panty raid in history. On Saturday, someone made off with 300 pairs of women's panties from the Victoria's Secret store in the Deptford Mall. That's about $4,500 in undies, according to a police report released yesterday. The panties were last seen at 11 a.m., arrayed on a red-felt-covered table a few feet from the front door. At 9:30 p.m. - closing time - an employee noticed that the table was empty. Nearly as unmentionable as the stolen goods were further details of the crime.

In 1947, he gave the American woman bras, nighties, peignoirs and panties, all in basic black. In 1952, he offered her panties that were crotchless. In 1981 his gift was edible panties and bras, in tutti frutti, pina colada, banana, cherry and passion fruit. Now, Mr. Frederick Mellinger of Hollywood is at it again. He knows exactly what his women want, and he's going to give it to them. Two-piece dresses with peplums and pleats. Chambray shirts and five-pocket denim jeans. Long, straight skirts that fall almost to the ankle.

Hey . . . fella! Yeah, you! The one breaking out in a cold sweat because it's exactly T-minus 11 days to Valentine's and you haven't got a clue as to what kind of treat you're going to get for your sweet. Worse still, being the sensitive guy that you are, you really want to do something different this year. Just this morning you turned on the radio and the sound of Janet Jackson's saucy admonition - "You sent me some roses / But roses do die / You gave me some candy / It melted - nice try" - didn't make you want to boogie, it made you depressed.

QUOTE "It is television that has made us inhumane . . . without pity. Something terrible has happened to America. " - Kurt Vonnegut Jr. THE BOTTOM LINE: TERM IS CHILDISH We are glad the William Kennedy Smith trial is over. Mary Lupo's scowls. Moira Lasch's monotone. Young Willie's perpetual smirk. Other than the "Jupiter woman's" riveting testimony, we've witnessed more honest emotion waiting for the "C" bus. And there's more: To Tattle's annoyance, both defense attorney Roy Black and prosecutor Lasch repeatedly referred to the undergarment worn by Smith's 30-year-old accuser as "panties.

Your first reaction to a concert teaming of The Game and Snoop Dogg might be "Duck!" But despite their one-time affiliations with, respectively, the violent California gangs Bloods and Crips, nothing was more peaceable than Saturday's meeting of the millionaire rappers at the Wachovia Spectrum. Snoop, hip- hop's most languorously fluid rapper, specializes in stadium-sized, pimped-out machismo, and here he laid it on thick - a stage filled with potlike plants and a soft porn gangsta film with Snoop taking on naked women and gunmen with guns blazing.

Whatever blows your skirt up. That could be the motto for a new breed of high-tech peeping toms: Men who secretly videotape up women's skirts. Philadelphia police say Daniel Laws, of Wyncote, is one of these perverts. Earlier this week, Laws, 50, became the first person arrested in the city under Pennsylvania's new peeping-tom law. Security guards at Filene's Basement on Chestnut Street allegedly caught Laws taking a videocamera from a duffel bag, surreptitiously placing it on the floor between the legs of shopping women, stepping back and letting the camera capture a view of their panties.
