A young TikTok user captured the disturbing moment a man attempted to film her while she undressed in a public dressing room.

Macey Leap is now trying to warn others to be cautious while in public. Her brief video shows as she prepares to try on clothes at a department store. Thankfully, Leap was observant enough to notice something strange and caught the wannabe peeping Tom red-handed.

The video shows a pair of men’s shoes on the floor of the neighboring changing room with a phone balanced between the man’s feet. Leap thankfully caught noticed the phone—angled to capture her dressing room—before she began undressing.

The disturbing incident plays out over just a few seconds, to the sound of Capone’s “Oh No,” which recently served as the soundtrack for a TikTok trend. Leap remains calm as she documents the creepy interaction, informing viewers via caption that the video shows “a man attempting to record me changing in the dressing room.”

Leap’s video has been viewed 16.5 million times and received over 2.6 million likes since she posted it on Nov. 3. A follow-up video from Leap suggests that TikTok briefly removed the viral video, only to later restore it.

Leap did not disclose at which store the incident took place and has not provided any updates on the situation. She did not immediately respond to the Dail Dot’s request for comment.
