Brandon, Florida-- A 12-year-old boy fled from a mall restroom Thursday afternoon after a man took pictures of him while he used the restroom, Hillsborough Sheriff's Deputies report.

The 12-year-old entered the bathroom of the Macy's Department Store at the Brandon Town Center Mall just before 2 p.m.

Minutes later, officials say he fled from the restroom and told his aunt and uncle that as he was in the stall, a man in the stall next to him reached under with his cell phone in his hand, and aimed it at the boy three different times.

Macy's store workers followed the suspect as he rushed to leave the department store. They were able to provide deputies with a brief description and the suspect's vehicle tag number, which deputies linked to a Dollar Rental store vehicle.

They identified the suspect as 57-year-old Victor Aaron Lemm of Michigan, and found him in his rented room at the Motel 6 off of Adamo Dr.

Deputies charged Lemm with Voyeurism, and they say he admitted to taking the photos.
