OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Police are looking for a person accused of targeting at least one unsuspecting woman at a Johnson County Target location.
Overland Park detectives said the man allegedly used a selfie stick to peep on a woman in the store’s fitting room.
Police said the incident happened at the Target location near 119th and Blue Valley Parkway around 5:30 p.m. on April 21.
“None of her body parts were exposed, none of the sensitive areas, so that’s the good part of the story. But it startled her, she was very scared,” said Overland Park Officer John Lacy.
Lacy suggested buying clothes and trying them on at home if you’re uncomfortable, just keep the receipt.
“Another thing that I would suggest is if you’re going into a fitting room, make sure there’s an attendant up front and so that person can vet the people going in or out of the fitting room,” Lacy said.
The Overland Park Police Department released pictures of the man they hope to identify, as well as the car he left the area driving.
Overland Park police said the man drove away in a red Honda Civic, similar to the image below.
“It’s pretty disgusting,” Susan Cassatt said. “I’m usually pretty comfortable in here, but this gives me creepy thoughts.”
“It’s scary, because you think you’re safe at Target in Overland Park, and sometimes I guess you’re just not,” said Amy Jurgensmeyer.
FOX4 has reached out to Target corporate and are awaiting a response.
Police said they do not know if this is the only peeping incident involving this man. If you recognize him call Overland Park police or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
