Fairfax County detectives are asking for the public's help in identifying a person of interest in an unlawful filming of a teen in a store bathroom at Springfield Town Center, the department announced Thursday.

The 16-year-old victim was using the bathroom at the Macy's department store when he noticed a hole in the bathroom stall. He looked in the hole and could see himself on the screen of the phone positioned to record the stall, according to a police news release.
