Target security officers told Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police that store surveillance cameras captured a man with a cell phone on top on his tennis shoe recording underneath a woman's dress. Security officers told police the suspect had used the technique on several different women in the store. Andrew McKenzie, 29, was taken into custody.
Eyewitness News spoke to one victim who said she didn't have a clue what had happened until after police approached her in the store. Customers shopping at the store today had some choice words for the accused peeping tom. John Summey said, "It's pretty pathetic he needs to be locked up or something." Shopper Barbara Fullerton said, "I think they need to find something better to do with themselves honestly."
While other customers offered praise for the alert security team who stopped him. Carrie O'Brien said, "No one ever gets caught so that's one less wack out on the streets."
Eyewitness News also reached out to Target's corporate office for comment. A spokesperson issued the following statement by email, "At Target, our highest priority is the safety and security of our guests and team members. We have extensive security systems and procedures in place to ensure the safety and security of everyone in the store."
Andrew McKenzie was charged with felony secret peeping. He has been released on $5,000 bond.
