Topless woman who totally doesn’t want her boobs seen chases peeping tom through store

A woman bounced topless through a department store chasing after a man who she claims was trying to snap video of her while she was trying on bras in a fitting room.

The incident occurred this week at a Kohl’s location in the Kansas City suburb of Lenexa, Kan., reports local CBS affiliate KCTV.

The woman, Jeanne Ouellette, said the peeping tom was laying on an adjacent fitting room floor while brazenly holding his cellphone under the flimsy partition.

Ouelette screamed. She yelled for help. Then, half-naked, she chased the man through the store, covering her breasts with her hands.

“She ran topless after the guy,” police officer Dan Friesen told The Kansas City Star. “She definitely got the attention of other shoppers.”

Ouellette gave an account of the ensuing melee to KCTV.

“I followed him. I shouted, ‘Stop! Help me!’ I just screamed and chased him topless through the store,” she told the station. “I was at a store in a very private place, and I was enraged and I wanted to get the phone.”

When she got to the door, she stopped chasing the guy and started crying.

“I was so upset that he was getting away,” she said. “When you feel violated, what you really want is for justice to be done.”

Ouellette also suggested that the man “is clearly mentally ill” for wanting to see her naked.

The alleged peeping tom, Jeremy F. Bradley, fled. He made it out of the store but police arrested him a few blocks away. The police hauled him back to the store where witnesses identified him as the perpetrator.

On her Facebook page, Ouellette effusively praises other shoppers for their help in catching Bradley.

“I did not catch or even effectively help catch the guy at the store,” she wrote (mostly in all caps). “I did chase him out of the fitting room but by the time I was near the front registers he was way ahead running out the door. I was really upset at that point because I thought he was just gone.”

Bradley, 35, has been charged with breach of privacy, a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison and a fine of up to $2,500.
