Man accused of recording inside Cherry Hill Mall bathroom

CHERRY HILL, N.J. (WPVI) -- Shopper Jesse Slocum says he was using the men's bathroom at the Cherry Hill Mall when he saw another man peeping through the bathroom stall.

"I was starting to pull the toilet paper, and I took notice as I pulled it, I saw his eye in the opening looking right through at me," Slocum said.

Within seconds, Slocum realized he was being recorded.

"And then I looked to my right and I saw his hand around the side of the phone holding it," Slocum said.

Man accused of recording inside Cherry Hill Mall bathroom. Christie Ileto reports during Action News at 11 p.m. on April 25.

Slocum says he immediately unleashed a firestorm of words at the would-be peeping tom.

"He proclaimed that he dropped his phone, and I said, 'you're kidding me.' And he got up and just jetted out the stall," Slocum said.

Slocum worries this man could strike again.
