Man Dressed “As A Woman” Arrested After Allegedly Attempting To Take Lewd Photos in Women’s Washroom

A registered sex offender is once again in police custody after being caught attempting to take lewd photos of women in a shopping mall restroom.

Douglas Egan, 45, was arrested on Christmas Eve at the Hulen Mall in Fort Worth, Texas, after police were called and told he had threatened a witness with a gun. The confrontation began when the woman was using the mall restroom and noticed a cellphone being held beneath the partition to her stall. Alarmed, the woman exited the stall and confronted Egan, who attempted to flee.

According to Fox 4, Egan was reportedly “dressed as a woman” at the time of the incident.

A bystander noticed what was happening and supported the woman by trying to stop Egan from leaving the premises. The offender then pulled what appeared to be a gun and pointed it at the witness, then continued to run. The gun threat resulted in the mall shutting down early and remaining closed the remainder of the day.

More witnesses and good samaritans came together to keep an eye on where Egan was headed, with some watching him eventually stop to change out of the women’s clothes he was wearing and back into men’s clothes.

Officers arrested Egan at a nearby apartment complex. Upon inspecting his backpack, they found the weapon he had pulled was a pepper ball gun.

Prior to this incident, Egan was already a known sex offender, having been issued a lifetime registration for three disturbing incidents, one of which was against a teen girl.

Egan was deposed in 2010 and 2011 for indecent exposure, and in 2015 for indecency with a child by exposure. All three victims were female, and Egan received terms of incarceration for each offense, the shortest being 60 days for his 2011 offense, and the longest being 7 years for his 2015 offense.

The repeat offender is classified as a “high risk” sex offender, indicating he is considered to be a serious threat to the community, and is expected to engage in further criminal sexual conduct.

Egan is currently in custody at the Lon Evans Corrections Center, and is being held on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and taking improper media in a bathroom. His bond is set at a combined total of $30,000 for the two charges.
