SALT LAKE CITY, UT — A man who was caught filming a 12-year-old girl in a Rue 21 dressing room was chased down and detained by the girl’s mother.

According to the girl’s mother, they were at the store Saturday evening when the incident occurred.

While the girl was in a changing room stall, her mother went to get a different size of clothing for her daughter to try on.

When she returned, she and a female employee witnessed a man in an adjacent stall to her daughter.

The man, identified as 36-year-old Jorge Leon-Alfaro, was allegedly using a cell phone to film the little girl from underneath the stall.

With the help of other witnesses, the girl’s mother was able to chase down Leon-Alfaro and detain him in the parking lot. She also took the time to pull out her own phone and start recording him.

“This right here is what a predator looks like,” she can be heard saying in the video that has racked up 4 million views on Facebook. “I’m going to make sure your face gets out.”

Police arrived and arrested Leon-Alfaro, charging him with voyeurism against a child under the age of 14. They have not said if he has a prior criminal history.

“People are aware of what’s going on and paying attention,” said Detective Greg Wilking of the Salt Lake City Police Department. “Other people were paying attention, too and saw similar things that concerned them and that led to his arrest.”

Have to give credit to the girl’s mom for not only detaining and Leon-Alfaro, but also for not ending up in jail herself. That had to take a monumental amount of restraint.
