Potential victims coming forward in Target hidden camera case

GRAND CHUTE, Wis. - Potential victims of a hidden camera placed in a Target fitting room have come forward, the Outagamie County Sheriff's Department said Thursday.

Ten people have contacted the sheriff's department after a Facebook post looking for potential victims, according to Patrol Staff Sgt. Ryan Carpenter.

The department said it's following up on the information, but it's a slow process.

Andrew Persen, 28, of Appleton, told police he put a hidden video camera in a fitting room at Fox River Mall Target, according to court documents. 

Officers recovered video showing women changing in that fitting room with a timestamp from April 2017.

He's also accused of secretly videotaping a friend in her bathroom and posting the video on a porn site.

Deputies are asking anyone who may have used a fitting room at the Fox River Mall Target on April 6 between 3-7:15 p.m. 

If you think you may have been a victim, contact Sgt. Michael Fitzpatrick at 920-832-5279
