Peeping Tom Apprehended After Topless Shopper Chases Him Through Store
LENEXA, Kansas - After catching a peeping Tom attempting to photograph her inside a dressing room on Monday, a topless woman chased the suspect through a Kohl's department store. Jeanne Ouelette told police she was trying on bras when she saw a hand holding a cell phone under the partition.
“I followed him. I shouted, ‘Stop! Help me!’ I just screamed and chased him topless through the store,” she said. “I know I shouldn’t be chasing someone … I was just enraged. I was at a store in a very private place, and I was enraged and I wanted to get the phone.”
But her rage went only as far as the front door.
“Common sense took over and said,’You shouldn’t go outside half naked,’” she said with a slight laugh. “At that point, I just started crying because I was so upset that he was getting away. When you feel violated, what you really want is for justice to be done.”
The suspect was 35-year-old Jeremy F. Bradley of Raytown was arrested by police several blocks away. Police brought him back to the store where he was identified by witnesses.
Bradley was charged in Lenexa Municipal Court with a misdemeanor charge of breach of privacy.
Master Police Officer Dan Friesen. “She definitely got the attention of other shoppers.”
