VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Police have arrested a man after they say he took pictures of a teenage girl in the dressing room of a department store. Now, officers are asking the public to come forward if they believe they’ve been victimized.
Officers arrested Matthew Ryan Rush on Sunday and charged him with production of child pornography and unlawful filming. The incident allegedly happened at Target on Independence Boulevard in Green Run.
“It’s very disturbing,” said Brenda Stevenson, a shopper who says she has daughters. “…To think of someone filming them without them knowing is horrifying.”
Police say the victim, who is between 15 and 17, looked down at one point to find Rush’s cell phone pointing at her from under the dressing room door. Officers say she alerted store security, but officers say Rush took off.
“It could happen anywhere,” said Stevenson. “You never know what people are thinking or people out in the community, you never know their state of mind.”
Actually, a man that wants to be in the same dressing room as a teenage girl has only one thing in mind and everyone knows what that is. There is a reason target is being targeted for peeping toms and perverts.
Shopping online and at Walmart is the best option. This will keep happening as times moves on.
