Stephen Murdock was arrested on Tuesday after police say he took the photos at an H&M store in a mall at Opry Mills.

According to the report, Murdock’s wife begged the victim not to call the police after the incident.

As Fox 17 first reported on Wednesday, Murdock approached the female victim and “guided” her to a dressing room in the clothing store, apparently pretending to be a store employee.

Once inside the dressing room, the woman noticed a black object in the corner and soon realized it was a camera pointed directly at her.

As she quickly got dressed and tried to get someone to call the police, she noticed Murdock emerge from the dressing room next to her.

As she confronted him, she noticed that he was deleting pictures from his phone, some of which were of her.

“I thought somebody was just messing with me,” she said, adding that she thought Murdock was a store employee when he directed her to the dressing room. »
