'Peeping Tom' records underage girl changing at Frisco Target

Police are searching for a ‘peeping tom’ who used his cell phone to record video of an underage girl inside a Frisco Target dressing room.

Investigators say the suspect put his cell phone over the wall of a female changing room and shot video of the girl.

The incident happened at the Target store on Preston Road Tuesday night around 7 p.m. on Tuesday.

The boy took off after the girl noticed the camera while changing clothes, according to police. She told her parent who told an employee. But by that time, the suspect was gone.

“With the phones where you can do anything you want, it's kinda scary,” said parent Melonie Arbet.

Police were able to capture the suspect on store surveillance and want the public's help identifying him.

Melissa Tollinger says parents who give their kids phones also need to teach the right way to use them.

"They don't realize the ramifications of sending one text,” said Tollinger. “Once it's out there, it's out there. Taking a picture and doing a snapchat or whatever. I think they're too young to realize the implications of it"

“You never know who's watching,” said parent Katie Lizotte. “And once on the net, it stays there forever."

Police say they do not have any leads at this time. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Frisco Police Department.
