INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (September 9, 2014)– IMPD is investigating after an Indianapolis mother says a man may have recorded her daughter changing at Castleton Square Mall.
The incident happened Monday evening inside a women’s clothing store around 8 p.m.
Jennifer Dunn used her phone to record videos inside the dressing room of the women’s store where her 13-year-old daughter changed. That video can be seen at the bottom of this story.
“His eyes were right there she was right there. He did invade her privacy. I just don`t know if it was taped. His cell phone was in his hand,” said Dunn.
Dunn says the 20-something man was sitting on the bench in the dressing room with his phone out. Dunner saw her daughter in his line of view. Dunn says she yelled at the man, and he ran out of the store.
“I could tell by the way he was sitting. I turned to into his view and could see directly into my daughter`s dressing room,” said Dunn.
The videos that Dunn took show the dressing room curtains do not close all the way. Dunn says she brought up that concern to store employees.
Dunn tells FOX59 she did not think the store employees or Castleton Square Security took her concerns seriously.
“We walked out of that mall knowing that my daughter`s safety was not even slightly on anyone`s priority list,” said Dunn.
FOX59 received a statement from Simon, who operates Castleton Square Mall:
“Two members of our security team were made aware of this incident last evening and responded promptly. Since the matter is now the subject of a police investigation, we do not have any further comment,” said Les Morris, Castleton Square Mall spokesperson.
IMPD officers will look at survelliance video at the mall and in the store to identify the man.
“This is obviously a serious allegation. The case will be investigated once it is assigned to a detective,” said Rafeal Diaz, spokesperson for IMPD.
“Our children need to be safe,” said Dunn.
