It’s almost as if concerned citizens have been warning against this exact thing happening for years.
A Tennessee man with a lengthy record of spying on women in bathrooms has been released from jail mistakenly after another incident of voyeurism, Red State reports.
The Knoxville Police Department is now searching for James Bradley Josey III, who has been accused of spying on a woman showering at a Planet Fitness on January 16th when he was already on probation.
“It would appear that Josey, 28, of Knoxville, should not have been released,” local Knox News explains.
The Knoxville Police Department is searching for the man accused of peeping in a women’s locker room at a Planet Fitness on Jan. 16, on two warrants for violation of probation.
KPD spokesperson Darrell DeBusk said the warrants were issued because the Jan. 16 offense occurred while James Bradley Josey III was on probation.
He was released from the Knox County Jail after being arrested Tuesday, and KPD is now asking for the public’s help in finding him.
It would appear that Josey, 28, of Knoxville, should not have been released.
According to the arrest warrant:
According to the warrant, Josey entered the gym on Jan. 16 around 4 a.m. and entered the women’s locker room, where he then opened a shower where the victim was nude.
The victim screamed before the suspect ran, and officers said the victim was able to capture a picture of him on her cell phone taken from the security cameras to provide to law enforcement.
Planet Fitness is well known for its “inclusive” locker room and bathroom policies and even famously booted a member for objecting to a man being in the women’s locker room with her.
Speaking of establishments with famously “inclusive” bathroom policies, Josey seems to like them. His last offense took place at a Target:
According to court documents, Josey III was in the women’s restroom at Target when a woman looked up and says she saw him looking at her over the stall. The woman told investigators she asked him what he was doing and he allegedly laughed at her, flushed, and took off with his cell phone.
The woman said she chased him out the front and security detained him, the report said.
“She yelled at the individual as she left was running out of the bathroom which drew the attention of employees. They did a very good job of caroling him and keeping him there until we could get there,” said KPD spokesman Darrell DeBusk.
If you are in the Knoxville area, keep on the lookout for this creep!
