Topless woman sprints through store to help catch peeping Tom

LENEXA, KS (KCTV) -

It was a wild scene at a Lenexa retailer Tuesday, and it began unfolding in a dressing room.

A woman trying on bras says she caught a man taking pictures of her in the store dressing room, and she went to great lengths to stop him. Other shoppers and police eventually helped catch Jeremy Bradley, authorities said.

Jeanne Ouellette was trying on bras in the dressing room at the Kohl's store off 95th Street in Lenexa. That's when she noticed there was a man with his hand under the dressing room wall, videotaping her with his phone. She said he was on the floor as he videotaped her.

She was so upset about the invasion of her privacy and that he could get away, she says she did something that might not have been the most wise. She chased him through the store while using her hands to cover her breasts.

"I followed him. I shouted, 'Stop! Help me!' I just screamed and chased him topless through the store," she said. "I know I shouldn't be chasing someone ... I was just enraged. I was at a store in a very private place, and I was enraged and I wanted to get the phone."

When she hit the front doors, she pulled up. 

"Common sense took over and said,'You shouldn't go outside half naked,'" she said with a slight laugh. "At that point, I just started crying because I was so upset that he was getting away. When you feel violated, what you really want is for justice to be done."

But other shoppers saw her frenzied efforts and they continued to pursue him, and the police were alerted.

Bradley was arrested about three blocks away.

Ouellette is grateful to those who helped arrest Bradley.

Bradley has been charged with breach of privacy, which is a misdemeanor. If convicted, he could face up to a year in jail as well as a $2,500 fine.

She says it's disgusting that it's only misdemeanor.

"He is clearly mentally ill, and he clearly needs treatment and he needs to go into the system ... so he can get his treatment," she said, adding that if he doesn't then his behaviors can escalate, and they need not to happen again.
