A man accused of preying on metro women in their workplace restrooms is now charged. Thursday, one of the victims shared the terrifying moments where he allegedly stared up at her in a stall.
Now that 34-year-old Tristan King is behind bars, the women who work near 48th and Classen don't have to worry as much every time they take a restroom break.
“One girl brought Mace to work and every time we’d go to the bathroom, we’d either tell somebody,” an alleged victim said. “Or we would go in pairs.”
Last month, private moments turned to panic when a woman, who doesn't want to be identified, said she came face to face with King in the women's bathroom.
“When I was bending down I happened to look and see this man’s eyeball looking at me under the stall. So I yelled. I said, ‘Are you looking at me?’ And he said, ‘No, no. I just dropped my pen.’ And then he took off running out the bathroom door,” she told News 9.
Apparently she scared him off, but he didn't get far before allegedly pulling another perverted stunt.
Hours later, he's accused of hiding in a stall at another business building near 36th and Classen.
This time, court documents said, he reached his hand under the stall, then blocked the woman from leaving. He reportedly "caught her from behind and wrestled her to the ground" but her cries for help were heard by a witness who came to rescue her. And managed to snap a photo of him leaving the building.
Police said Tristan had also put vulgar drawings on the stalls at both locations.
Records show he faces attempted rape and peeping tom charges
