A woman has a warning for people who use the changing rooms at a Robinson Township, Pennsylvania, mall.

Heather Lapinski said that while she was trying on bathing suits at Macy’s in the Mall at Robinson, she noticed a cellphone under the door. She grabbed it, but a man’s hand grabbed it back.

By the time she was able to exit the dressing room, the man was gone.

“I got ahold of it and a man's hand came down and grabbed it. I couldn’t scream. I was in so much shock,” Lapinski said. “I was crying. I didn't have my top on (and) I’m not running out completely naked.”

By the time she was able to exit the dressing room, the man was gone.

Lapinski described the man as having a medium build and balding in the front of his head.

She said she hopes that someone recognizes the man before he does it again.

“I want someone to say, ‘I know him.’ He can't keep going back and keep doing this to women. I’m going to be traumatized for the rest of my life,” she said. “When I go to bed, I toss and turn thinking about his face.”

Both Macy’s and the Mall at Robinson said in statements about the matter that the safety of customers is a top priority. They could not confirm whether other incidents were previously reported.
