A man faced charges for video-recording women using a ladies restroom at a Southern California department store while dressed in a wig and women’s clothing.

Although the incident happened three years ago, it’s still relevant given North Carolina’s recent public bathroom legislation and the debate it has generated.

Several shoppers alerted store security of Jason Pomare, 33, loitering in the women’s restroom at a Palmdale, California Macy’s store, according to local NBC affiliate KNBC 4 News.

Store security alerted police and an officer working the area noticed Pomare, who matched the witnesses’ description, as he was leaving the store.

The officer eventually found the peeping Tom hiding in a storage room, still wearing the wig, women’s clothing and a bra. Inside his purse was a video camera containing “hours” of footage.

“The deputy noticed he was wearing a wig and appeared to have breasts,” said Sgt. Brian Hudson, of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

He was charged last week with six counts of unlawful use of a concealed camera for purposes of sexual gratification.

KNBC reported:

The suspect pointed the concealed camera under restroom stalls, but one woman recognized the camera’s red recording light and contacted security officers, investigators said. Pomare told detectives he had been in the restroom for about two hours, said Hudson.


And rocker Bruce Springsteen can’t figure out why North Carolina passed a law making it illegal for men to use women’s restrooms.

When this story was originally published, we neglected to indicate that the event had happened nearly three years ago, but that given todays political climate, it nonetheless was relevant.
