Authorities have arrested and charged a 50-year-old Virginia man with being a peeping Tom at a Macy’s department store.

Kevin Norton of Springfield, Va., was charged with indecent liberties with a minor and peeping. He was being held on a $10,000 bond, according to Fairfax County police, and turned himself in to authorities Tuesday.

The incident happened Aug. 14 inside a bathroom at the Macy’s at the Springfield Town Center.

A young teenage boy was in the bathroom, police said, when he noticed two men looking at him in the bathroom stall. One of the men, according to a police statement, “lowered his pants and began masturbating in front of the child.”

The boy “frantically sent text messages to his mom,” who then came into the bathroom and the men left.

Police said one of the men later reentered the bathroom and stayed in the store.
