Dressing room drama: Man snaps pics, attacks woman


It was just past 9:30 pm on Dec. 1, when Anchorage police were dispatched to Burlington Coat Factory at the Northway Mall.

A woman had reported that she was sexually assaulted by a man who was in the next changing stall in the store’s dressing room.

The woman was changing clothes when she noticed the man taking pictures of her from above the partition.

She left the stall to confront the man and discovered he had no pants on and was masturbating, according to the official report. He allegedly tried to grab her, but she yelled for help. He then retrieved his clothes, left the dressing room, and sexually assaulted the woman before running away.

The suspect is described as a short male in his 20s, between 5’3″ and 5’05” tall, with a “very pointy nose.”  The victim described the skin on the suspect’s face as so white that he may have had makeup on.
