Imagine this scenario, ladies. You're out shopping, and your bladder is bursting. You rush to a stall and sit down to pee. Ahhh, bliss. Suddenly, from the stall next door, this head appears under the partition:

That head belongs to Dickinson's Juan Gomez, who is alleged to have peeped under partitions at a Ross, Wal-Mart and TJ Maxx along the Gulf Freeway in League City.

"He was like a snake, a lizard," a victim named Jessica Burnett told Channel 11.

Burnett said she and a co-worker had stopped to shop at the store Jan. 23 on their way back from a Texas Press Association convention in Galveston.

Burnett said she was in the restroom stall about 12:30 p.m. when she glanced down and saw a man crawling under the partition and staring at her.

She said she screamed, kicked at him and ran out of the restroom. The man ran away, she said.

Ultimate Clear Lake reports that Gomez, 24, is charged with two counts of disorderly conduct, a Class C misdemeanor. He also has an outstanding Galveston County warrant for failure to truthfully identify himself, a Class B misdemeanor.

Employees of some of the stores where Gomez struck also told police that Gomez had allegedly been hanging around the parking lot showing pictures from Playboy magazine to random women.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
