- A man was using a toilet in the men's bathroom in the Mall of Africa in Midrand, Johannesburg when he saw movement in front of the stall's door
- Dezra Ore, who is a musician, started recording and what he saw was shocking
- A stranger had been on his hands and knees attempting to look inside the stall
On Friday, Indie singer Dezra Ore took to his Twitter account to share a disturbing video. In the clip's description, Dezra explained he was using the bathroom at Mall of Africa when a 'Peeping Tom' tried to sneak a peek at his "goods".
The video shows the unidentified man going on all fours to try and look underneath the toilet stall's door.
According to an account he gave of the incident to News24, Dezra said he saw the man standing in the bathroom when he went in but didn't give him a second thought.
However, when he was in the stall, he noticed a lot of movement outside the door and he decided to turn on his phone's video camera.
Briefly.co.za learned that after spotting the man, Dezra remained in the stall for half an hour longer because he was too shaken up to leave.
"So I caught this man trying to see my goods while I was using the toilet, was at Mall of Africa. I had to wait 30 minutes before I went out because I was freaked out and still a bit shaky," he captioned the video.
The video went viral, reaching over 201 200 views since it was posted online. South Africans could not believe their eyes and many expressed their shock in the comment section.
Charles Muedi, who goes by the Twitter handle @Muedinc, commented:
"Somebody asked about gender neutral bathrooms recently, I hope they understand why it would never work after this."
Another tweep, @bwaleng, wrote:
"Where are the Twitter detectives? This one has to be identified and dealt with."
