Police Searching for ‘Peeping Tom’ Who Recorded Girl in Texas Target Dressing Room

Target Tom-compressedFRISCO, Texas — Police in Texas are searching for a young man who recorded a girl as she was changing her clothes in a Target dressing room.

According to reports, the incident occurred at approximately 7 p.m. on Tuesday night at the Frisco location. The girl told her parents that a man was peeking over the wall with a cell phone as she was getting changed in the dressing room.

Her parents told store employees, but the man had already left the building. However, surveillance cameras were able to capture him on camera.

The suspect appears to be in his late teens or early 20’s and has dark hair and a slim build. He was wearing a red t-shirt, blue jeans and a baseball cap. Police are now seeking the public’s help to identify the individual.

“With the phones where you can do anything you want,” parent Melanie Arbet told Fox 4 News, “it’s kind of scary.”

As previously reported, just last week, a Florida woman chased a convicted voyeur as he fled his local Target store when she recognized him from a previous encounter at the grocery store.

Candace Spivey of Yulee told reporters that she was shopping in the bikini section when she was approached by Jeffrey Polizzi, who asked, “Shouldn’t we make sure it’s not too, like, sheer or clear?” He was later charged with reckless driving after frantically fleeing the scene.

On April 23, a man from Missouri was arrested at the Brentwood Target after he allegedly recorded a woman trying on a swimsuit. Matthew Foerstel now faces a charge of invasion of privacy, a felony, over the incident. He had spent a year in jail in 2013 after filming an 11-year girl as she was partially nude in the dressing room of another department store.

Gerry Wagoner, writing for Fulcrum7, says that Target’s new restroom and dressing room policy poses a problem in that it increases the chances that such incidents will occur, leaving women and young girls feeling violated.

“The left will insist this has nothing to do with letting transgender people use the rest room of their choice, but here’s why they’re wrong: Some guy decides to wander into the ladies’ dressing area. An employee sees him. Does the employee stop him? How does the employee decide? Maybe the guy doesn’t look transgender, but is that the test? Who has defined it? And if anyone does define it, who’s to say activists won’t change the definition next week?” he said.

Over a million Americans have signed a pledge not to shop at Target until it changes its policy to ensure the safety and privacy of women and children. Some who have objected to the store policy state that they are not as concerned about “transgendered” persons as they are about pedophiles and voyeurs who will see an opportunity to act upon their illicit desires.

      Oh looky here, another religous man who knows it all.

      New pagans are winning the battle, because Christians are unarmed. No it’s because of the discrimination and the hate against LGBT that you are loosing the batlle. Stopped watching after that, cause he thinks he knows it all, he does not.

      • TheBottomline4This

        Any “winning” is only a temporary victory:)
        Having a different opinion is not hate or discrimination. Anymore than your differing opinion against the “religious man” and what he shared is hate…right???
        “Stopped watching after that” Thanks for proving you are closed minded Jolanda.

        • Jolanda Tiellemans

          Discrimination to me is what you Christians are doing right now, passing bills that take away the rights of all LGBT people.

          • TheBottomline4This

            Again…having a different opinion is not hate or discrimination. You really should watch the whole video. Not saying you will like what you hear, but be open minded enough to watch it once. If you don’t agree after you watch the whole thing, that is fine.
            Can lgbt individuals get a job? rent a house? go to a doctor? buy a car? go to the library? vote? order a Pizza? sign up for satellite tv? etc. Sure some of these are technically not rights, but they can do these things. What rights is “taken away”?…taken away is the key phrase in your comment.

          • Jolanda Tiellemans

            Seriously? If you can find a video which is not bias I will watch, but I know you don’t have that. Are homosexuals discriminated when they go to a baker to get a wedding cake? Yep, it happened. Are homosexuals discriminated when they go for a marriage license? Yep, it happened. Are homosexuals discriminated when they go for a job. yep, it happened. Are homosexuals dicriminated when they go for a house? Yep, it happened. They passed a bill saying that a transgender can’t go to the bathroom of the gender they identify with. That is discrimination in my book. Is this all happening to christians, heteroes? Nope. In some states they still refuse to recognise SSM, discrimination in my eyes and taking away the rights of homosexuals. and I’m pretty sure it’s not the end. there are people who will be thrilled if homosexuality would become a crime again.

          • TheBottomline4This

            As far as the video, remain closed minded. I’m fine with you doing that. I won’t force you to watch it.
            “not bias” hmm, like you would be with any video, etc you would share that backs your thinking. Gotcha.

            Are the following discrimination?…..
            At the baker for a “wedding” cake?…nope.
            “marriage” license?…nope.
            A job?…the person should be hired, if they are qualified for the job.
            A house?…the person should be considered if his or her finances are in order and the offer is right.
            trans bathroom issue…nope.

            So there’s a mix here. Some of it is right and some of it is wrong.

  • Michael C

    There appear to be some recurring themes in all three of these stories.

    1. None of these incidents occurred in a state or city that prohibit discrimination against gay and transgender citizens. In all of these cities, stores and restaurants are free to tell gay and transgender customers to get out.

    2. None of these criminals attempted to gain access to sex-segregated facilities by pretending to be transgender.

    3. None of these instances occurred in the bathroom. Target’s policy on allowing transgender people use the appropriate bathroom did not lead to these incidents taking place. Even if Target prohibited transgender people from using the correct bathrooms, it would not have prevented these three incidents.

    • SFBruce

      Thank you.

      • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

        Pls read my reply to erroneous Michael C.

        • SFBruce

          Please explain exactly what is erroneous in Michael’s comment. Have any of the men in mentioned in this article claimed they had a right to do the things they did because of Target’s policy? No, they have not.

          If you think there’s some correlation between Target’s policy and these incidents, make your case, but every statement Michael made is absolutely factually correct.

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            His comment is erroneous bc Target’s pro-transgender bathroom policies include fitting rooms, n not just bathrooms.
            ……. This Peeping Tom incident happened in a Target fitting room, n not in a bathroom.

          • gizmo23

            The target I worked at never had separate fitting rooms for men and women. No problems.

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            Isn’t a fitting room located in the Bikini n Women Attire section of Target meant for women only.?

          • Michael C

            Do you know more about this story than the rest of us?

            Did any of these incidents occur in a fitting room specifically designated for women?

            Did any of these men pretend to be transgender in order to access these fitting rooms?

          • gizmo23

            No. Not in the store I worked at

          • Michael C

            Target’s pro-transgender bathroom policies include fitting rooms

            Perhaps you’re confused. This article doesn’t provide much in the way of detail.

            Are you under the impression that these men took advantage of Target’s policies to walk into a fitting room designated for women?

    • Debra Boyd Shaw

      • Michael C

        When was the last time you were in a Target store?

        As much as I appreciate the name-calling, you need to start with the facts. Would any of these incidents have been prevented if Target stores refused to allow transgender people to use sex-segregated facilities?

      • Patrick Van Der Ven

        You know when you resort to name calling it is an ad hominem. You have ceased arguing the point and lost the argument.

        Secondly the adjective of nitwit does not apply to Michael C; he is one of the most intelligent commentators on the net.

    • localhistorywriter

      Your posts are so funny.

  • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

    Under the thumbs of the vote-pandering n power-crazy liberals of the Blue States, the majority(= women/girls) r made to suffer for the minority(= transvestites), ……. n similar for the Blacks, Hispanics, unionized workers, the lazy n irresponsible poor, etc.

    • gizmo23

      All 3 incidents happened in red states

      • Patrick Van Der Ven

        Funny how red is the colour associated with conservatism in America: whilst it is blue oall over the rest of the world.

      • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

        These pro-transgender bathroom policies come from the liberal Blue States n Target is based/headquartered in Minnesota, a liberal Blue State.
        ……. The liberal “disease” has infected the Red States.

        • gizmo23

          So the red states are weak and stupid and can’t think for themselves. I get it now

            No, the liberal Blue States r diseased. Get it.?

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            Diseases will spread.
            …….Eg AIDS began with the gays of SF, LA n NY(= liberal cities of the Blue States) in 1980, n then spread from the infected gays to non-gays everywhere, eg sexually-promiscuous people, prostitutes, drug-addicts, blood-transfusers, etc.

        And all three individuals were not trans or posing as women.

    Shocker.
    And only the Christian website stalking trolls dare act surprised!
    Exactly the kind of stuff they repeatedly assure us will never happen.
    You know, as the evidence to the contrary instead proves it to be the new normal.
    To which they, in turn, break out a three point plan desperately attempting to refute the evidence by shamefully and with much embarrassment, asserting that the mounting irrefutable evidence doesn’t actually mean what it actually means.<si

    • Michael C

      Would any of these incidents been prevented if public accommodations prohibited transgender men and women from using the bathroom?

      • Patrick Van Der Ven

        Of course these laws would not stop this behaviour. I can not comprehend the issue and these laws that people are getting their nickers in a twist over. Transsexuals and transgendered people have been using bathrooms of their gender identity for years and there has not been a problem. Why the uproar now?

        • Jolanda Tiellemans

          Never talked about, never being a issue. SSM becomes legal in all 50 states and boom all of the sudden it’s a issue.

    • acontraryview

      Who assured you that heterosexual men will not attempt to invade the privacy of women in dressing rooms? That has been going on for quite some time.

    • Jolanda Tiellemans

      I grew up among LGBT people, most where family friends, and not once I felt threatened by any of them. There was this teacher in my high school and he couldn’t keep his hands to himself, he was married and had two kids, he was a creep. I felt threatened by him, he finally got the sack, but it took some time because he was the son of a politician. So who is the sexual predator here, the LGBT friends or the teacher? And it’s to say, most men want only one thing, getting into the panties of a woman, most men think about one thing only, sex.

          Hey, Trump, I was just wondering, calling other men “Muffin” might lead them to believe that you are homosexual, which would be interesting considering how you’re always trashing them here. So I was just wondering…ARE you a homosexual?

          Val should pay YOU rent for living in his head, Trump! After all, you won the gold medal!

    • Smithnikov

      The man didn’t pose as trans or claim it to gain access. He just did what peeping toms have done since peeping toms first peeped.

    • Peter Leh

      these thing have always gone on.. WITHOUT any trans laws, example: FRISCO, TX

    • Elie Challita

      That dude isn’t transgendered by any conceivable criteria. Even if he were, peeping is still illegal and he or she would have been prosecuted anyway.

  • acontraryview

    I hope they catch him

  • Patrick Van Der Ven

    Sorry to tell you this, but the transgender laws will not stop this sort of thing happening at all. You will always have opportunistic sex offenders that will try to film or watch people undress.Recently in Melbourne Australia a landlord was convicted of setting up cameras in bathroom and filmed girls showering. Common sense should dictate who goes into which restroom. Transgender laws would have had no impact on this case at all.

  • AnnieElf

    After reading all the comments, I’m jumping in. Let’s get back on topic. This incident happened on May 6, 2016 somewhere in Texas. It happened because Target quietly put men’s and women’s changing rooms together without the least separation between them. Changing rooms simply one after another. This has nothing to do with anything except a coorporate decision to streamline. One changing area = one employee to watch over all instead of two. Callous decision and I stopping buying clothes there right then. That was two years ago. Seems I was right.

    • TheBottomline4This

      I rarely try clothes on in stores anymore. I hold something up in front of a mirror, usually one near where the clothes are hanging and see if it looks like it might work, if so, I buy the things and come home and try them on. I keep what I want and refund what I don’t 🙂

    • gizmo23

      Bass pro, Walmart, many others only have 1 area to try on clothes. How is this a problem?
      It hasn’t been until this fear mongering issue was inflamed by so called moral oeople

      • AnnieElf

        It isn’t the single area, gizmo23, that is a problem It’s that there is no separation. At our local Wal-Mart, there is a single area. Men to the left. Women to the right. No problem.

        Target has not done that. It’s one changing area that is shared by everyone. Hence the guy being able to film over the wall to the changing room next door. You can’t do that at Wal-Mart. I don’t know about Bass Pro Shop but if they are set up like Wal-Mart, no problem with that either.

        This has been a big problem for a lot of women for more than two years and it can’t be connected to all the other foolishness going on. If you didn’t know this than you weren’t paying attention. I know a LOT of women who don’t buy clothing at Target anymore for exactly this reason and they are everywhere, not just where I happen to live.

        • gizmo23

          The Target I worked at had completely private changing rooms with doors and high walls.
          Where has this been a problem. Just another silly made up issue

          • AnnieElf

            Come to Turlock in California. Yeah, a Blue State. You will find exactly what I described.

          • gizmo23

    • LadyFreeBird♥BlessedBeTheLord

      Yes you are right.

    • Elie Challita

      Yup. The same thing happened to my girlfriend in a little boutique in SF: The store’s unisex and starved for space, so they just put up a bunch of unisex dressing rooms next to each other and separated them only by hung curtains.

      The guy in the stall next to my girl’s accidentally swiped the wrong curtain (yeah, I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt). It’s bad design, but it’s far from a catastrophe.

    So let me get this straight. A heterosexual man spies on women, and it’s somehow the fault of pro-trans policies. Man, my old high school must have been really pro transgender because guys tried to spy on the girls locker room a lot.

    Target also received a lot of pushback in the 1960’s because they were one of the first retailers to feature African-American models.
