WAL-MART ‘PEEPING TOM’
A woman shopping at a Dallas Wal-Mart on Tuesday, told police a ‘peeping tom’ used a camera attached to his shoe to look up her dress. The incident happened at the Wal-Mart off Interstate-30 and Cockrell Hill. Police say a 38-year-old woman was shopping at the store when a man approached her and got a little too close. “He was actually sliding his foot between her legs, as if to try to look up her skirt with a shoe; which had a hole in it,” said Dallas Police Department Sr. Cpl. Kevin Janse. The woman told police she confronted the man after noticing his shoes and called police. The woman told police the man took the camera out of his shoe and ran out of the Wal-Mart. Police are searching for the man who could face felony charges.
