Police are looking for a man who reportedly held a cell phone under the wall of a bathroom stall at Cypress College to record a woman using the toilet, reports KTLA.

The man in question was brazen (or stupid, depending on your take) in his actions, which took place in the college's Humanities building. KTLA reports that:

The victim saw a hand come from underneath the divider of the stall next to her, holding a cell phone camera. She believed the suspect holding the device was recording her.

The victim began to shout, and exited the stall.

She saw a male suspect run from the stall next to her. He fled without a word.

The woman, an apparent badass, chased him down across campus and while chasing him, called the cops. He got away when he scaled a wall at a nearby business.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Cypress Police Department at (714) 229-6600.
