The Target transgender controversy continues after a transgender woman reportedly took pictures of a woman in a Target dressing room. reports that the incident happened at a Target store in Ammon, Idaho. Sean Patrick Smith, 43, also known as Shauna Patricia Smith, reportedly was caught taking photos of the woman in the changing stall next to him. 


“The woman was begging for help as she chased the man out the door,” a witness told East Idaho News. “She kept saying she wanted those pictures deleted.”


Police apprehended Smith and charged him with a felony count of voyeurism. He was held in the Bonneville County Jail until his court appearance on Wednesday.


Back in April, Target announced that “transgender team members and guests” were welcome “to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity.”


According to, this is not the first incident of a sexual predator taking advantage of Target’s transgender policy. There have reportedly been similar instances in Texas and Massachusetts.
