Furious mom chases down pervert who was filming her 12-year-old daughter in changing room
Doris Stiles-Scown chased the man all the way to the parking lot and made sure that she caught his face on camera. She made sure he won't be seen under any stalls in the future
A mother of a 12-year-old girl is being applauded after she chased down a man who tried to film her daughter while she was changing in the dressing room of a store. On Saturday (August 18) Utah mom Doris Stiles-Scown took to Facebook to post a video of a man named Jorge Leon-Alfaro, 36. The video showed the man sitting in the parking lot with his head down and surrounded by bystanders.
Doris said in the video that she chased the man down from clothing store Rue 21 after she spotted him filming her daughter. “This right here is what a predator looks like," she could be heard saying in the video. “I caught this guy underneath my daughter’s stall while she was changing at Rue 21. And I had to chase him all the way down, thankfully I got him. Not today, buddy.”
Doris had left her daughter's dressing room only for a couple of seconds and when she returned she found Jorge under the stall, trying to grab the girl’s legs. Doris knew that she wasn't going to let this man do this to anyone else and made sure that his face was visible in the video. “I’m going to make sure your face gets out so that you’re not in any more stalls…I’m going to make sure you go viral. You’re a sick pervert…Do you have kids?” she said, adding, “You’re going to leave a scar on her permanently.”
Doris further told the man that she will be attending his potential court hearing. “Not today, he didn’t get away from this mom," she said. A police spokesperson told Yahoo Lifestyle that Jorge was booked into jail on a charge of felony voyeurism and official charges are pending. Doris also took to Facebook to tell people that police officers joked with her children that they have “one bada** mom” and compared her to Superwoman.
“They said I should come work for them catching bad guys for a living," she said. Spencer Coursen, a threat management expert and founder of the Coursen Security Group told that outlet that Doris deserves praise. “She had the mindfulness and awareness to notice when something was out of place, and the willingness to protect her child,” he said. “Sexually deviant predators are much likelier to target individuals rather than groups, so if a dressing room is not monitored by a designated staff member, it’s best to ask a salesperson to step in.”
On Facebook, many people jumped to praise the mother and Doris responded to one user who asked her how she had handled the incident. “It’s not illegal to record people in public places,” she wrote. “And the video will more than likely help because there are 10 million people watching they are going to want to make an example of the sick b**tard.” She also noted that Jorge had pulled this stunt at other stores as well.
People also applauded Doris on social media. "So glad you’re doing this to him!" one wrote. Another added, "So glad you made this post. This is such a great way to spread awareness. Please keep up updated on what happens. Did the cops arrest him?" Meanwhile, another claimed that they had seen the man before. "I swear this is the guy that was taking pictures up women's dresses in Southtown," read the comment.
