40 Million Card Accounts at Risk After Data Breach, Target Says
December, 2013 Target says information from approximately 40 million of its customer credit and debit cards swiped in stores may have been compromised by a data breach during the height of the holiday shopping season.
The data breach occurred between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15, 2013, at U.S. stores, Target said in a statement this morning. Target said it immediately contacted authorities and financial institutions once it became aware of the breach. The Minneapolis based-company said it was teaming with a third-party forensics firm to investigate the breach.
"Target's first priority is preserving the trust of our guests, and we have moved swiftly to address this issue, so guests can shop with confidence. We regret any inconvenience this may cause," said Gregg Steinhafel, chairman, president and chief executive officer. "We take this matter very seriously and are working with law enforcement to bring those responsible to justice."
The U.S. Secret Service is investigating but declined to provide further details.
Brian Krebs, who first broke the story for KrebsOnSecurity.com Wednesday, said the breach couldn't have come at a worse time for shoppers and Target.
"I can't think of another day in the calendar when target or anyone else could expect to have more people in stores. More deals, traffic, more swipes -- perfect day to launch an attack," Krebs told ABC News.
Krebs said the breach involved the data stored on the magnetic strip of cards used only in stores and not online. The breach, said Krebs, may extend to nearly all of the 1,797 Target stores nationwide.
"The information that's stored on the magnetic strip -- name, card number, expiration date, other info -- if bad guys can steal that card ... they can actually create a second copy," Krebs said.
If thieves can create a second copy and were able to intercept a PIN number, that could allow them to withdraw money from ATMs, said Krebs.
Customers who may have been affected should pay extra attention to their debit and credit card statements, said Krebs.
"Advice to customers -- be vigilant, pay attention to your statement if something doesn't look right," Krebs cautioned. "Whether or not you feel like you might be impacted by this breach, it's a really good idea, particularly around this time of year, to pay attention to what's on your debit and credit card statements."
While consumers will likely be reimbursed for any fraudulent charges, the refund might not come until after Christmas, creating another headache for shoppers.

HARBINGER WARNINGS - Isaiah 9 prophecy
UPDATE May 2014
ZionsCRY NEWS with prophetic analysis
Target Was Warned About Its Massive Hack and Did Nothing
March 2014 The hack that embarrassed U.S. retailer Target and left millions of customers' credit card information naked and exposed wasn't particularly complex or all that elaborate, according to new investigation. It only worked because, for some reason, Target didn't react to the safeguards it put in place.
Bloomberg Businessweek spoke with over 10 Target employees who were privy to the company's data security protocol and eight people "with specific knowledge of the hack" and came away with a less than flattering picture of Target's approach to security. The story basically says that Target was sitting on its hands while it was being hacked to smithereens. Businessweek explains:
Poring over computer logs, Target found FireEye’s alerts from Nov. 30 and more from Dec. 2, when hackers installed yet another version of the malware. Not only should those alarms have been impossible to miss, they went off early enough that the hackers hadn’t begun transmitting the stolen card data out of Target’s network. Had the company’s security team responded when it was supposed to, the theft that has since engulfed Target, touched as many as one in three American consumers, and led to an international manhunt for the hackers never would have happened at all.
The hack was malware that would steal credit card information with a swipe and store it on Target's servers. Hackers then uploaded more malware to spirit away the numbers to a different server, which Target's data safeguards caught.
That oversight ended with hackers compromising 40 million credit and debit cards, and costing banks and credit unions some $200 million. It also hurt Target pretty badly. "Partly because of the fraud costs, Target said its fourth-quarter profit was down 46 percent while revenue fell 5.3 percent," ABC News reported in February. And the company is still trying to figure out how to win back its customers' trust.
Banks sue security firm Trustwave over Target breach
Trustmark National Bank and Green Bank N.A. have sued security firm Trustwave for damages suffered from the holiday season data breach at Target Corp, accusing the company of failing to identify security gaps, the American Banker reported.
The two banks are seeking damages of more than $5 million and named Trustwave Holdings and Target as defendants, the American Banker said.
The banks allege that the vulnerabilities in the Target system were either undetected or ignored by Trustwave, giving hackers access to millions of card accounts and personal records, the report said.
Some 40 million payment card records were stolen from the discount retailer, along with 70 million other records with customer information such as addresses and telephone numbers, during the 2013 holiday shopping season.
Target missed multiple opportunities to thwart the hackers responsible for the unprecedented holiday shopping season data breach, U.S. Senate staffers charged in a committee report released on Tuesday.
The report also said Target gave access to its network to a third-party vendor that did not follow accepted information security practices.
Target faces dozens of potential class-action lawsuits and action from banks that could seek reimbursement for millions of dollars in losses due to fraud and the cost of card replacements.
Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder declined to comment on the American Banker report. Trustwave was not available for comment outside regular business hours.
TARGET favors homosexual marriage
Augutst 2014 Target officially signs onto a court action seeking to strike down the definition of marriage as one man and one woman.
TARGET supported SIN in 2012
If I need to choose between patronizing SIN
and patronizing a commie nation who hires workers,
I'll go Walmart
From what I understand, alot of these big, mainstream low cost/high value stores like Wal-Mart and Target have advocated slave labor in other countries like China - where they would sell their products made from these slave labor camps at low cost...so that they can sell their products at costs *at not too expensive prices*.
I don't know if Target does, but I've heard Wal-Mart does.
Personally, I advocate QUALITY products - just as long as I can afford it(that is), QUALITY products will last a long time. So you would probably get your best value at stores where they specialize in certain products(ie-Bed, Bath, and Beyond for example if you want a bedroom item), and not some big mainstream one like Wal-Mart.
Target Closing All Stores in Canada
January 26, 2015 - These pictures show why they failed.
Target is giving up on Canada. They close all 133 of its stores north of the U.S. border, which have been losing money. Target Canada has been an unmitigated disaster, trying to accomplish too much, too fast, with too little thought. Target opened 124 stores at once in 2013. Rather than build its own real estate, it purchased leases on buildings whose locations were "dumpy, poorly configured for Target’s big-box layout, and were in areas not frequented by the middle class customers." Because it revved up so quickly, Target never had time to develop a working supply chain in Canada, which left its stores short on merchandise and full of empty shelves.
I suggest promoting SIN was the killer. Killed other stores in USA too.
Target cuts jobs
March 4, 2015 - Minneapolis-based Target said they will cut several thousand jobs within the next 2 years.
TARGET went QUEER in 2013.
Target caters to SIN
When stores cater to SIN they do NOT prosper, ditto a nation!
God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity.
Target Announces Today That Transgenders Can Use Any Bathroom They Want In Stores
"In our Target stores, we demonstrate our commitment to an inclusive experience in many ways. Most relevant for the conversations currently underway, we welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity."
Target Corp said on Tuesday that transgender employees and customers can now use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity, becoming the first big retailer to weigh in on an issue at the center of a heated national debate.
EDITOR’S NOTE: I wonder if Target has a high enough insurance level to defend against the myriad lawsuits after Target customers, mostly women and young girls, are secretly photographed, openly mentally and verbally abused, and even raped in the stalls by men wearing dresses.
This announcement comes amid the firestorm surrounding North Carolina’s controversial bathroom law, which requires people to use bathrooms and locker rooms in public facilities that correspond with their gender at birth.
In a blog post, Target said, “We welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity.”
In the blog post, the company also reaffirmed its support of the federal Equality Act, which provides protections to LGBT individuals.
Target’s full blog post reads:
Recent debate around proposed laws in several states has reignited a national conversation around inclusivity. So earlier this week, we reiterated with our team members where Target stands and how our beliefs are brought to life in how we serve our guests.
Inclusivity is a core belief at Target. It’s something we celebrate. We stand for equality and equity, and strive to make our guests and team members feel accepted, respected and welcomed in our stores and workplaces every day.
We believe that everyone—every team member, every guest, and every community—deserves to be protected from discrimination, and treated equally. Consistent with this belief, Target supports the federal Equality Act, which provides protections to LGBT individuals, and opposes action that enables discrimination.
In our stores, we demonstrate our commitment to an inclusive experience in many ways. Most relevant for the conversations currently underway, we welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity.
We regularly assess issues and consider many factors such as impact to our business, guests and team members. Given the specific questions these legislative proposals raised about how we manage our fitting rooms and restrooms, we felt it was important to state our position.
Everyone deserves to feel like they belong. And you’ll always be accepted, respected and welcomed at Target.
Target promoting potty PERVERSION
April 23, 2016 Target Potty Boycott - Target's new bathroom policy threatens the safety of women and children! After Target announced that its stores will allow men to use women's bathrooms and dressing rooms, 160,000 people signed onto an American Family Association boycott.
Target's policy is exactly how sexual predators get access to their victims. And with Target publicly boasting that men can enter women's bathrooms, where do you think predators are going to go?
This insanity is all about PERVERSION
There are a lot of stories of perverts peeking and taking photos in dressing rooms, bathrooms at Targets across USA. The perverts DO NOT WANT unisex bathrooms, they WANT to prey on the innocent.
I am warning ladies never shop there alone.
Take someone to stand guard outside.
Top Twenty-Five Stories Proving Target's Pro-Transgender Bathroom Policy Is Dangerous to Women and Children - Breitbart
The Target department store chain drew the ire of millions of Americans after it announced it was opening its bathrooms to transgender shoppers and employees and allowing them to choose whatever bathroom they feel like using at any given time.
Days later a #BoycottTarget petition effort launched that drew over 200,000 signatures in a day and over 300,000 by the weekend.
The current imbroglio should not be a surprise, as for years Target has been a big purveyor and supporter of gay-friendly policies and causes. So, this current bathroom policy issue is not the first time the chain waded into left-wing issues.
On its corporate website, for instance, there are many posts and announcements celebrating the LGBT lifestyle.
Furthermore, last year, Target was a corporate sponsor of the “Out & Equal” conference, a summit aimed at forcing corporations into adopting gay-friendly workplace policies.
The company was also praised by gay groups for its “It Gets Better” campaign meant to boost the status of homosexuality in the U.S.
In addition, Target raised the ire of many with its decision to re-engineer its kids’ sections, when in August of 2015 the chain announced it was eliminating “gender specific” labels and store signage for kids’ clothing and toy sections.
The radical homosexual agenda is not the only liberal issue Target has taken on. Two years ago the company demanded that customers “not bring firearms” into stores, despite legal concealed-carry laws saying gun owners may do so.
The company also has a long list of political causes and candidates it has donated to over the years.
Still, in defense of such polices, liberals ask what harm could come to anyone if bathrooms are opened up to men dressed as women, or others who claim to be transgender? On the other hand, those who reject these policies ask why the nation should put women and children in danger by allowing predators to more easily enter and install video cameras in bathrooms and changing rooms or otherwise threaten and harass people using the restroom?
Target itself has had incidents of predators threatening children in its bathrooms. Only weeks ago such an incident occurred in a Cedar Park, Texas store.
But there are dozens of such stories over the last 16 months or so highlighting the problem with setting policies that would make access to public restrooms easier for predators.
First up are five incidents in which predatory men were discovered committing criminal actions in public restrooms. Some of these men were arrested while dressed as women; others claimed to be transgender women.

With all these stories, it is also apropos to ask just how many Americans these transgender polices would affect. By even the most generous estimations only .3 percent of the nation claims to be transgender. So, in the end, these extreme policies of bending over backwards for people who claim to be transgender are designed for less than half of one percent of Americans.

Transgender Activists' Wrath Falls on Texas Photographer
As of the time of publication of this article, the poster has received over 27,000 shares from her post on the Target Facebook page.
Joyce Moore first added the poster to her Facebook page on April 21st.
She told Breitbart Texas that she made the poster and published it on her personal Facebook page, and on Target’s Facebook page, because it was the right thing to do. She had no idea that the backlash against her small photography business would be so quick and so vindictive.
LGBT and activists for transgenders in women’s restrooms have retaliated by going to her Joyce Moore Photography Facebook page and slamming her in reviews. She has received 39 “1 star” ratings as a result and her overall rating has dropped to 2.8 stars from 5 stars.
Moore was warned that a Facebook page called “Entitlement is still a disease” found at www.facebook.com/EIADII/ had shared a link to her business Facebook page. The person warning her called the group a “hate group” and told her “They are on a mission to destroy you.”
The warning says that the post on the “Entitlement is still a Disease” Facebook page says “This lady created an awful meme about attacking trans rights. Be sure to leave her a wonderful review.”
Interesting, the website listed on the “Entitlement is still a disease” Facebook page is www.f**koff.com Clicking on the website link brings you to a graphic of Democrat presidential candidate Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). It says on the page, “FEEL THE BERN.”
Just a few of the “reviews” she has received to date:
Moore has a photography business and she photographs children and families. She goes to schools to take photos of children. She says that one of the reasons she made the poster against the transgender movement, including the recent decision by Target business executives, is that she is concerned for children.
Ms. Moore told Breitbart Texas that she started making posters or “memes” when she saw a photo on a Facebook page that had a “I’ll Go With You” button. Used to promote a transgender bathroom agenda, they are used to say to transgenders, I will go with you to protect you in the bathroom. The website where the button can be found includes a section that tells people how to be “An #IllGoWithYouBuddy.”
Moore also became concerned when openly gay mayor, Annise Parker, was fighting for the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO). Although Houstonians defeated the measure by a margin of 61 to 39, the fight to get to that victory was extensive. It involved going up the court system to the highest court in Texas. Breitbart Texas reported extensively about this battle.
Moore is not the only person who has posted on Target’s Facebook page. Another Texan, Michelle Prescott, added this poster on an advertisement for soup on the store’s page.
As reported by Breitbart News, people are using social media to express their disgust and outrage about the decision by Target executives to allow transgenders or men claiming to be transgender, to use any bathroom or fitting room.
#BoycottTarget has topped Facebook’s top 10 trends for three days in a row, as reported by Breitbart News. The boycott petition by the American Family Association has as of the time of publication of this article, reached over 583,000 signatures.
Moore told Breitbart Texas, “It is insanity to allow males into female restrooms. My poster says it all. I have a right to my privacy.”
As it relates to her business, she says she is “a small conservative business owner who has worked hard to keep high standards for my business and to keep my clients happy.” She says she “was totally appalled when haters came to my website and started giving me one star and hateful comments. It came to the point that I have changed or deleted all of my personal information.”
Moore says that even though all of this has upset her greatly, she has “no regrets.” She is also encouraged that over 30,000 people and “climbing” have shared her poster. She says she told one distractor, “I will take your one star to protect the children.”
She asks that people continue to share her poster.

Target stock is down
April 30, 2016 - Target’s Stock down 5%, Brand damaged by Public Rebuke to permit penises in girls bathrooms.
Target’s stock price and its favorability among shoppers are crashing as the normal public rebukes them for mixed-sex changing rooms and bathrooms. That’s a huge loss, costing shareholders roughly $2.5 billion in company value.

Target stock plummets as “transgender” bathroom boycott swells to over one million
When retail giant Target announced their new policy of allowing anyone to use whichever bathroom they wish in their stores it was completely predictable that a firestorm was going to follow… and boy howdy, has it ever. While the SJW crowd cheered the decision, realists around the country signaled their collective displeasure with a boycott of the store spearheaded by The American Family Association. In a relatively short time, more than one million people had signed on to the protest. (Fox News)
More than one million people have decided they will no longer buy their Nutter Butters or Wet Wipes at Target.
The American Family Association launched a boycott of the nation’s second largest retailer a week ago – over Target’s corporate policy allowing men who identify as women to use the bathrooms and fitting rooms of their choosing.
“We believe that everyone – every team member, every guest, and every community – deserves to be protected from discrimination, and treated equally,” the company wrote in a statement. “Consistent with this belief, Target supports the federal Equality Act, which provides protections to LGBT individuals, and opposes action that enables discrimination.”
Is the boycott having any sort of effect in such a short period of time? These things are often hard to gauge, but in this case there seems to be a strong hint provided in the fact that the company’s stock has taken a precipitous drop during the same period. (Daily Caller)
On Friday, the shares of Target Corporation Common Stock (TGT) fell 2.52 percent in one day, according to recent reports. In addition since April 19th, the day they announced the new policy, the stock went from a share value of $84.14 to $79.27 per share. That’s a drop of 5.8 percent in 10 days.
The Family Policy institute says they estimate that to be a loss to the company of $2.5 billion dollars…
As previously reported, in addition to signing the “boycott pledge” the group is encouraging people to post on Target’s Facebook page that they are upset about the new policy.
While I’m not generally a fan of boycotts as a means of enacting political change, this one is understandable and, as I said above, predictable. I also find the focus of the protest message to be a bit off the mark as well, while understanding the concerns being raised. Opponents of this misguided policy at Target continue to stress the danger of sexual predators using the open bathroom access as an invitation to perpetrate assaults. While I suppose it’s possible, it also seems unlikely that a determined predator would allow a gender designation sign on a door stop them from pursuing their victims, and incidents of such attacks seem to be rare. These scenarios are less disconcerting than cases where women are forced to share locker rooms and showers with men, opening the door to creepy voyeurs breaking out their cell phone cameras and worse.
Running the debate immediately to these worst case scenarios overshadows the underlying argument to be made. What about the simple concept of propriety and privacy which any civilized person should accept? Women should not be forced to use the bathroom, change in a locker room or take a shower in front of a strange man. Is that really so difficult to understand or express in a public policy statement?
This isn’t the first time Target has dipped a toe into the troubled “gender identity” waters. Last summer we talked about the store’s new policy of “de-gendering” the toys and clothing aisles so as not to offend anyone. The sad part of all this is that this stupid, pointless battle (which was clearly going to affect the company’s sales no matter which way they went on it) was completely unnecessary. Just as with public, government facilities, there is a simple (if still costly) solution, assuming one believes that a solution is required. In fact San Francisco (of all places) hit on the idea very early in the national debate. If a company or public facility truly feels that they must jump into this entire “degendering” fiasco, then in addition to traditional facilities for each gender, simply add on a third, gender neutral bathroom or other facility. Then anyone going in can be informed that there is no gender requirement for occupancy and, likewise, the owner/management offers no guarantee as to the gender of the other patrons you may encounter in there. Alternately, when new facilities are constructed, put in multiple, single user facilities and just label them as “shower” or “bathroom” or “changing room.”
Problem solved. Then, if someone wants to insist that they must be allowed in public facilities with people of the opposite gender, their true agenda is exposed. (You will be made to not only care, but to participate.) This is an important aspect of the conversation which the SJW all to often succeeds in suppressing. We aren’t having a conversation here about discrimination or the suppression of anyone else’s rights. Dress however you wish. And for that matter, the vast majority of us aren’t going to care one way or the other what you call yourself despite the obvious denial of basic genetics and science on display. The real motivation of the SJW is to force such twisted claims on everyone else and mandate their participation even when it comes at the expense of the rights of the majority.
Target Loses Billions After Changing Bathroom Policy To Allow Transgender Men In Ladies Room
“On Friday, the shares of Target Corporation Common Stock (TGT) fell 2.52 percent in one day, according to recent reports. In addition since April 19th, the day they announced the new policy, the stock went from a share value of $84.14 to $79.27 per share,” reported The Daily Caller.
Target stock prices dropped 5.8 percent 10 days after the corporation announced their new store policy, allowing customers to choose the bathrooms they use based on the gender they identify with, regardless of whether it matches their biological sex.

EDITOR’S NOTE: If the over 1.1 million people who signed the pledge to boycott Target will adhere to that pledge, perhaps they and other retail outlets will get the message. Christians are called to be ‘salt and light’ to a lost and dying world. Fight the good fight, resist the Devil, and stand for something. You were not saved to be silent.
The drop in stock prices amounts to an estimated loss of $2.5 billion dollars, according the Family Policy Institute.

Target Stock Dropping, Major Corporations Jump on Transgender Bandwagon
Christian activist group American Family Association pledged to boycott Target in response to their new transgender-friendly bathrooms. 1,148,335 people have signed up in the last week.
“We’re hoping that other corporations will see that there is a price to pay, potentially at least, for pushing this LGBT agenda too far,” said Tim Wildmon, president of AFA. “We just think this is a bridge too far.”
AFA announced last week that they’ve gained a lot of support
“More than one million people have pledged to boycott Target (#BoycottTarget) until it stops allowing men to use the women’s restrooms and dressing rooms in Target stores,” reported AFA on their website Friday.
Though Target will “comply with all local laws” in places like like Oxford, Alabama where it’s a misdemeanor for people to use a bathroom that doesn’t correspond with the sex on their birth certificate, Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder told The New York Times, the corporation is still standing strong by their new bathroom policy.
“Our belief in and commitment to inclusivity has not changed,” said Snyder. source
The horrifying experience in a Target bathroom that I won't soon forget
I went to Target with my daughter last week, and since it was right after dinner and I'd had three iced teas with my Mexican food, I made a pit stop to the restroom first thing while she went on ahead to check out the swimsuits.
I was alone in the restroom. There were two large handicap-access stalls, complete with baby-changing tables, and two regular stalls. I headed all the way down to the farthest single stall, up against the wall, and I sat down to take care of business.
That's when stuff got weird.
The outer door opened, and someone came in. She walked past the three open stalls and stood directly in front of my door. Then she leaned over and placed her eye firmly up against the gap between the door and the frame and stared in at me.
I am not making this up. And let me tell you, it was awkward. Bizarre, even. This wasn't a case of someone hoping all those occupied stalls aren't really occupied. Mine was the only stall that was occupied. She deliberately stopped and stared in at me. My startled eyes met hers, and she moved away, into one of the larger stalls.
I got out of my stall as quickly as I could, and as I stood washing my hands, her voice called out.
"Sorry about that," she said. "But you know, Target lets men and homosexuals use just any bathroom now. I was making sure you were a woman."
I didn't say a word, because I really didn't know how to answer that.
Was she expecting a transgender woman to be lying in wait, hoping to... what? Urinate differently behind a closed door? Was a pedophile or a rapist in a dress and a bad wig going to crawl under the stall walls while she sat, even though this is a public restroom in a very busy and popular store, when anyone — including employees with walkie-talkies — could walk in at any time and catch them? And don't even get me started about the homosexuals. I guess she's just worried they'll leave homosexual germs around or something.
I walked out, utterly gobsmacked, and it wasn't until I caught up with my daughter and told her the whole ridiculous story that I realized the complete and utter irony of it. This woman deliberately made me feel horribly uncomfortable just because she was uncomfortable with the extremely vague possibility of someone being different than expected behind a closed and locked stall door.
My daughter raised a brow and asked, "Did you tell her that your teenage daughter has a girlfriend?"
"She probably would have blinded me with hand sanitizer or something," I joked.
Anna just shrugged. "I feel sorry for her. I mean, with everything going on in the world, this is what makes her afraid? She doesn't even know how creepy she's being."
Come on... the woman had to know she was being creepy. And it was really, really creepy. She just didn't care. Either she had an agenda to let me know she was taking a certain "moral" stance about a new policy, or she really is afraid enough to do something rude and creepy even though she knows it's rude and creepy.
And in the end, she was still shopping at Target, because she needed or liked its products, and her fear didn't stop her from shopping. And transgender men and women are quietly and without fanfare using the restroom they want to use and going on about their day, and probably most people don't even know they did it. And the pedophiles and rapists of the world will still find a way to hurt people, as they always have, policy or no policy.
And me? I'm still thinking about how ridiculous the whole thing was. My mind runs through all the snappy comebacks I should have used on her but didn't. I should have blown her a kiss. Or mooned her through the crack of her door. I should have told her I used to be a man named Brutus but bought the new do-it-yourself transgender kit that Target stocks on aisle seven.
Mostly, though, I think about my wise and beautiful daughter. The one with the girlfriend. She feels sorry for that woman. She chose compassion instead of offense or rudeness or insult.
But I still wish I'd blown a kiss.

Man Nabbed for Allegedly Filming Girls in Target Changing Room
A man has been arrested for allegedly using his cell phone to take video of young girls changing clothes in a Bedford, New Hampshire, Target store, reports say.
Bedford police announced that Zachery Bishop was arrested after Target shoppers complained that they saw him filming little girls in the changing area.
“Allegedly the young ladies were in the fitting room and they observed a device over the top of the partition between the two rooms,” said Bedford Police Chief John Bryfonski, as reported by WFXT ABC TV.
After getting dressed, she confronted the man, who then pushed her aside. “She continued to tussle with him,” CBS Boston reported.
One woman who accused the 22-year-old man even physically intervened to detain him for police; she followed him out the store and attempted to restrain him after a confrontation with Target employees.
Chief Bryfonski noted that it is likely Bishop has engaged in this behavior before, and asked the public if they recognized him and had any run-ins with him in the past.
The Bedford Target put out a statement about the incident:
At Target, our guests are at the center of everything we do and our commitment to creating a safe and secure shopping environment in our stores is unwavering. As a part [of] this commitment to safety, we have robust procedures, policies and trainings in place to ensure that our stores are safe places to shop and work.
As soon as this incident was brought to our attention, we immediately partnered with local law enforcement. As this is an active investigation, please direct further questions to them.
The suspect turned himself in and was charged with violation of privacy. He is being held at the Hillsborough County jail on a $2,000 bail.
Target is adding single-stall restrooms at all stores
Big-box retailer Target will add single-stall restrooms at all of its stores where that option is not currently offered, reflecting a direct response to the debate that erupted earlier this year over its new transgender-bathroom policy.
Target Chief Financial Officer Cathy Smith told reporters Wednesday that the company would invest $20 million to add single-stall restrooms.
The company already had single-stall restrooms that anyone can use at about 1,400 of its 1,800 stores, Target spokesperson Katie Boylan said.
Target Cries 'Uncle,' begs shoppers to come back
Aug 27, 2016 - Target is launching a one-day sale to try and boost back-to-school shopper traffic amid a boycott over its bathroom policy. They offer a 10% discount on everything in its stores and online on Sunday. The sale comes after Target last week reported its first quarterly traffic decline in more than two years.
