WASHINGTON — A peeping Tom used a mirror to get a look below a restroom stall this week, and Prince William County police say the details sound familiar.
On Sunday, a 35-year-old woman told police that a man dressed as a woman stuck a mirror under her restroom stall at the Potomac Mills Mall. She had been with her 5-year-old daughter at the time.
After a quick struggle, the man dressed in pink clothing ran away.
In May, a voyeur using the same method tried to peer into a stall at the Walmart in Woodbridge, Virginia.
“We want the citizens to be aware that there is someone lurking around who is doing these types of [things],” says Prince William County police spokesman Officer Steven R. Mattos.
“The descriptions provided by our victims and from what we’ve concluded in our investigation, the individual is very similar in nature,” he says.
The man is described as white or Hispanic, about 5 feet, 10 inches tall and 220 pounds. He’s between 35 and 45 years old, police say.
