Virginia: Alexandria “Man” Arrested on Christmas Eve for Filming a Minor in Mall Dressing Room

Ladies beware!
The “man,” Mumtaz Rauf, 39, was arrested at Fair Oaks Mall in Fairfax, Virginia after a sharp-eyed teen saw what looked like a camera peeping down at her while she was trying on clothes in a mall shop.

The incident is alleged to have happened at Forever 21 in the late afternoon of Christmas eve.
The girl reported her fear about someone possibly filming her to a store clerk who then spotted a man hurrying from the store.
Rauf was arrested in a dressing room in another store a short time later.
NBC Washington reported (see the video too!) that when police arrived Rauf had a pinhole camera on him, some black tape and a Bluetooth transmitter.
Rauf “was charged with unlawful filming of a minor, which is a felony because of the victim’s age,” continued the NBC report.

Rauf was previously a bartender in Alexandria and had been profiled almost a year ago to the day in the Old Town Crier.
In the interview Rauf was asked, “How did you get started in the bartending business?”
His reply: “High hopes of money, women and fame.” (Hmmm!)
Fairfax County Police believe that this was not a one-time event, so if you think you may have been filmed in a dressing room at Fair Oaks Mall, call police at 703-591-0966.
The story was reported by other local news outlets here and here.

There is no mention of Rauf’s nationality or immigration status in any of the reports.

  1. The word “man” is in quotations twice in this article. Is that because the author is trying to say real men don’t do such things as this man is accused of, or because he dressed like a woman to get into the female changing rooms?

    1. No, it is kind of a joke that Ann Coulter started. She said when you read crime stories about let’s just say “new Americans,” you need a “secret decoder ring” to learn more about them… where they might be from, how they got here, are they here legally, etc. I didn’t suggest he wasn’t a real man and I had no clue how he managed to get into the women’s dressing room. Do you have more information on that?

      1. No, I have no proof that he was impersonating a woman. I was just looking for context with the treatment of the quotes. Thanks for the info!

  2. Ah yes our culture needs enrichment from primitive, backward Neolithic countries whose core cultural values, beliefs are in diametric opposition to Western Civilization. We need them to show us the light and the way. Now my goodness I wouldn’t want to “profile” but from appearances I don’t think he came from a farm family in Iowa!
    I think we have enough sexual predators, perverts and deviants of our own. I don’t think we need to be importing additional ones. Apparently being a sexual predators, perverts ,deviant is his way of pursuing the American Dream and enriching our culture!

  4. The story is even worse, if you follow one of the links inside the linked story:
    “Fairfax County detectives say approximately 60 women and girls were recorded in fitting rooms in Fairfax clothing stores…
    Police found Rauf in an H&M fitting room and have since collected more than 100 videos on Rauf’s cell phone showing women recorded in fitting rooms between Dec. 15 and 24.”
