GREENVILLE, SC — Police say a man wearing makeup, a wig, and women's clothing pushed a cellphone under the divider of a restroom in Greenville and tried to take a picture of a woman in the next stall.

Shawn Thomas Hallett, 38, was arrested after police allegedly found a video of the woman on his phone.

The incident started on Sunday after a woman told police she knocked on a stall door on Sunday and heard a male voice. She peeked under the door and saw women's shoes, so was not initially concerned, according to Charlotte's WSOC-TV. However, she then allegedly noticed a cell phone under the door that she said appeared to be focused on the occupant of the next stall.

The witness called 911, and Hallett was arrested and charged with voyeurism.

He was reportedly in custody as of Monday.
