Man sought in connection to unlawful filming in Fairfax Co. mall

Police are looking for a man who may have information on an unlawful filming inside a Fairfax County, Virginia, mall bathroom.

It happened in a Macy’s bathroom in Springfield Town Center on July 22.

A 16-year-old boy noticed a hole in the bathroom stall and when he looked in the hole, he could see himself on a screen of a phone positioned to record the stall he was using, Fairfax County said Thursday.

The boy told his mother, who called police.

Police obtained video footage that shows a man in the area at the time the camera was found. They are asking people who recognize the man below, or believe they may have been a victim, to call 571-992-4824 or email
