On August 14, a woman was in a stall in the Macy's restroom when someone reached under the partition between the stalls and took a picture of her with a cellphone. The female victim reported to Wayne Police Officers that she shouted in surprise: "What are you doing?" She then went to the stall and knocked. A male exited, waving his hands in the air and ran from the restroom, through the department store.
