DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -  

A 20-year-old man faces charges for spying on women in a restroom at Perimeter Mall.

Dunwoody police said Ricky Summers sneaked into a restroom at the Dunwoody mall to violate women.

"It's sick is what it is and somebody like that has to be sick to do something like that," shopper Debbie Pritchett told Channel 2's Erica Byfield.

Police said Summers recently hid out in a stall inside one women's restroom at Macy's, and when he thought the coast was clear, he'd pull his phone out to snap photos and shoot videos of women next to him.

They believe Summers went in the same restroom three times before getting caught.

"It was very, very creepy and it was very, very wrong and I'm sorry to the women that it happened," another shopper, Tanisha Scott, said.

Police said as soon as an officer arrived after getting leads from a victim, Summers confessed to the crime.

Police then arrested Summers and charged with two counts of peeping Tom.

"I would think he's definitely got a problem, but there are people like that everywhere. You never can be too careful," Pritchett said.

Summers is being held in DeKalb County jail.
