A 36-year-old man secretly filmed women trying on clothes in the dressing room of a South Jersey Target store, police said Monday.

A victim told police she saw a man’s hand creep under her fitting room inside the store, located at 751 South Route 73, on Aug. 9 around 7:41 p.m. The hand was holding a cell phone, she said.

The victim attempted to confront the voyeur, but he ran out of the store.

Police have since identified the suspect as Francis Vain of Williamstown. Investigators found evidence that Vain has taken pictures of this victim and several others in “unknown fitting rooms,” officials said.

Vain was charged with first- and third-degree invasion of privacy, according to Evesham police. He was released on his own recognizance.
