LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – A Quarryville, Pennsylvania, man was arrested and charged after a 10-year-old girl told her mother that she caught him watching her as she used the bathroom.

James Thomas Shoemaker, 19, faces one count of invasion of privacy in connection with the April 14 incident at the Sheetz in the 1100 block of Manheim Pike.

Employees at the store said Shoemaker had been in the bathroom for about an hour.

Police caught Shoemaker inside of a stall in the women’s bathroom in possession of a phone as described by the victim.

Investigators determined that Shoemaker was watching porn before using his camera to look over at the stall next to him.

Shoemaker has been released from custody with a summons to appear in court. His phone is being forensically analyzed.
