Police in Wayne are asking for assistance as they search for a man who took a photo of a woman in a bathroom stall at the Willbroook Mall over the summer.
After getting tips from the public Wayne police identified the man as Mohammad Abass, but said the 40-year-old Newark resident fled recently to upstate New York and Vermont.
He is possibly driving a 2004 gray or silver Honda Accord with New Jersey registration A12LGM.
The incident took place Aug. 14 at about 6:30 p.m. when a man reached under the stall in a Macy’s restroom and took a photo of the woman, police said. When the woman said “what are you doing?” and knocked on the next stall, the man ran out of the bathroom. She chased him through the store before losing him when he ran down an up escalator, according to police.
Abass faces charges of invasion of privacy and criminal trespass.
Anyone who knows where Abass is can call Wayne police at 973-694-0600.
