Detectives Seeking Person of Interest in Unlawful Filming of a Minor in a Fitting Room at Fair Oaks Mall
Fair Oaks Police District – Detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying a person of interest in a case of unlawful filming of a minor at a store in Fair Oaks Mall. It happened at Hollister Co. between 2 and 3 last Sunday afternoon when a 13-year-old girl was trying on clothes inside the fitting room. She heard a noise in the stall beside hers and when she looked down, she saw a cell phone that appeared to be filming her while she changed.
The victim reported the incident to her mother who then notified Hollister Co. employees. The store has been cooperating fully with the investigation and their loss prevention team has been in contact with our officers regularly.
Video footage was provided to us which shows a man inside the store around the time of the offense. Officers say this is someone who may have information regarding the case and they are not calling him a suspect at this time.
