YULEE, Fla. – A Florida woman confronted a voyeur at a Target store, driving the man to run off in a video that’s now gone viral.

According to Candice Spivey, the encounter happened last week at a Target store in Yulee, Fla. Spivey said the man, later identified as Jeffrey Polizzi, approached and asked her inappropriate questions.

But then something seemed familiar about Polizzi; Spivey said she recalled meeting him before at a store two years ago.

“At first he is very believable. At first he comes up and seems like he genuinely need your help in regards of answering questions about a dress he bought for his wife,” Spivey told WJXT.

The conversation then turned awkward when Polizzi started asking inappropriate questions about her undergarments and body. Spivey took out her phone and began recording their latest encounter.

“Do you remember running into me at the grocery store? Hey you – where you going? Come back!” she says in the video as Polizzi makes a break for it. She gives chase and yells for people to stop him.

She said she followed him because she wanted to know who he was so the public would be aware of him. Since the video went viral, 50 women have reached out to investigators about Polizzi and his behavior.

He was arrested in 2009 on charges of video voyeurism and criminal mischief. He pleaded no contest in that case, court records showed.

After the encounter with Spivey, Polizzi ran to his car and took off. Police later arrested him for reckless driving.

Spivey’s video has been viewed more than 2.1 million times on Facebook.
