  • A Texas man in women’s clothes allegedly took photos underneath a stall in a mall bathroom. A female victim noticed the cellphone underneath the stall on Christmas Eve at at Hulen Mall in Fort Worth, and confronted the suspect, who she described as “a male that was dressed to look like a female.” Douglas Egan, 45, has been arrested and is facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and improper photography.
  • White Settlement police are searching for a man after a teenage girl was found unconscious inside an Academy Sports and Outdoors restroom last week. A relative found the 17-year-old in a seated position with an unknown man standing over her. Police said the relative began yelling at the man, who fled the washroom and ran out of the store. Police said they have “credible information” that the man was recently seen at the same location, “engaging in similar behavior.”
  • Mexico’s Supreme Court decriminalized abortion last year, but around 200 women are still in prison under state laws that consider abortion to be a form of homicide. In some cases, these laws have been applied to women who miscarried.
