A middle-aged man who identifies as transgender was arrested Tuesday for taking photos of a customer while she changed in the women’s fitting room at an Idaho Target store. Police booked Shauna Patricia Smith into Bonneville County Jail for one count of felony voyeurism.
Smith identifies as transgender and had entered the women’s fitting room as a female.
The victim was trying on clothes inside a dressing room Monday when she saw someone taking pictures of her. Smith had allegedly reached over the stall wall with a cellphone and photographed the victim before fleeing on foot.
“The woman was begging for help as she chased the man,” the witness told EastIdahoNews.com.
The victim repeatedly told the suspect to delete the pictures, but she was unable to catch the perpetrator.
Though Smith identifies as a woman, the witness identified the suspect as a man and the jail inmate roster lists Smith as a man named Sean Patrick Smith.
A news release stated that police used witness testimony and store security footage to locate Smith. They put Smith in custody.
