A 22-year-old woman was changing in a New Jersey clothing store’s dressing room on Thursday when she made a horrifying discovery, according to police.

There was a man snapping pictures of the woman on his cell phone as the woman changed clothes at the shop in Edison, New Jersey. And when the woman confronted the man, she found out he wasn’t just anyone. The man told her he was a law enforcement officer, according to Middlesex County prosecutors.

That’s when the woman called 911.

Danuel S. Brown, a 30-year-old special agent in the FBI’s New York field office, was arrested on charges of fourth-degree invasion of privacy, prosecutors said. Brown is a resident of Piscataway, a New Jersey town near Edison.

Brown had positioned his cell phone below the door to the woman’s dressing room, and then used the device to capture multiple pictures of the 22-year-old as she changed, investigators said.
