A Queens man was arrested and charged with unlawful surveillance after he made lewd comments to a woman outside a fitting room in Roosevelt Field in East Garden City on Thursday, then was caught using his cellphone to photograph a second woman inside that changing room, Nassau County police said.
Troy Gibbons-Blair, 31, of 147th Street, Jamaica, was arrested at the scene and charged with public lewdness and second-degree unlawful surveillance, Nassau County police said.
Gibbons-Blair pleaded not guilty at arraignment Friday in First District Court in Hempstead, according to News 12 Long Island.
Online court records show bail was set at $1,000 cash bail, $2,000 bond.
Police said Gibbons-Blair was inside the American Apparel store at Roosevelt Field when he approached a 20-year-old female customer outside a fitting room at about 5:15 p.m. — and “tried to engage her in lewd conversation.” He was rebuffed.
A short time later, police said, a second female customer, also 20, saw Gibbons-Blair “hanging his cellphone over the wall in the fitting room,” photographing her as she undressed.
The second victim then contacted police, who made the arrest.
