Hurst police: Man was recording in women's restroom

HURST -- An unidentified man was discovered in a women’s bathroom at a store doing some recording with a cell phone, police said Tuesday.

But he fled the can before employees could stop him.

The man was in the women’s restroom at Barnes & Noble in the 800 block of North East Mall Boulevard on Feb. 1, police said.

A 32-year-old Euless woman and a 60-year-old Arlington woman saw him in there last week, according to Hurst police reports.

He was recording with a cell phone, police said.

The Euless woman told police that she believed the man had recorded her in the bathroom.

Police reports don’t indicate whether it was audio, video or photographs.

The man was described as white or Hispanic, about 27 to 33 years old, weighing about 185 pounds, wearing a black or blue hooded jacket.

He was in there for 15 minutes, reports state.

After walking out of the bathroom, the man got into a blue four-door car, possibly a Hyundai, and drove away, police said.
