HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A Holland Township man who allegedly tried to spy on a woman inside a Meijer restroom is in custody.

The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office says an 18-year-old Holland Township man was arrested around 7 p.m. Friday, about four hours after the incident inside the Meijer store at 3320 West Shore Drive in Holland Township.

Investigators say a woman saw a cellphone pointed at her under the door of the bathroom stall. The woman notified a store manager. When store employees spotted the suspect, he ran out of the door and south on West Shore Drive.

Deputies say media coverage of the incident was “instrumental” in identifying the suspect, who was taken into custody without incident in the Holland Township area. He remained in the Ottawa County jail Friday.

Deputies are withholding the suspect’s name until he’s formally charged.
