Since Target announced their “all inclusive” bathroom and fitting room policies, allowing anyone to use the facilities that match their “gender identity,” a wave of unacceptable violations have been occurring in Target stores across the nation. Below is the most recent:
NOTICE: (Unlike a fake news report from April 2016 involving a woman supposedly arrested for taking pictures of underage girls in a Target bathroom, THIS REPORT IS REAL.)
AMMON — An Idaho Falls man who police say identifies as transgender was arrested Tuesday afternoon after deputies say he took photos of a woman in a fitting room in Target.
43-year-old Sean Patrick Smith, who also goes by Shauna Patricia Smith, was booked into the Bonneville County Jail on one felony count of voyeurism.
Bonneville County Sgt. Bryan Lovell says deputies were called to a disturbance at Target on 25th East just after 5 p.m. Monday.
A woman told them a man, dressed in women’s clothing, had entered a fitting room in the women’s clothing section of the store. Deputies say the suspect was seen taking photos of a lady in a stall next to him while she was changing.
“The woman was begging for help as she chased the man out the door,” a witness inside the store, who asked not to be named, tells EastIdahoNews.com. “She kept saying she wanted those pictures deleted.”
The suspect, later identified as Smith, left the store and Lovell says detectives located him Tuesday afternoon.
Lovell says detectives are investigating to see if there are other victims.
A booking photo for Smith was not immediately available. He is expected in court later this week.
