After a group of terrified young girls came out of the bathroom, they explained that a creepy older man had stuck his head under the stall to get a look at them. However, despite trying to flee, the pervert ran right into a group of angry fathers.
A S*X offender was tackled and detained by a group of fathers after he was caught allegedly peaking under the stalls in a ladies' bathroom.
The perv was reportedly peaking at a 15-year-old girl in the ladies room at a Cracker Barrel restaurant in South Carolina on Sunday morning.
The offender, identified as 53-year-old Douglas Lane, was arrested after the dads took him down and is facing several charges, according to local station WSPA.
The teen reportedly noticed something moving by her feet while she was in the restroom, and then realized that it was a man in the stall next to her.
When she left the restroom, she told her father who then got a female employee to get Lane out of the restroom so he could confront him, according to Duncan Police Chief Carl Long.
The man reportedly tried to flee the Cracker Barrel after he was confronted by the girl's dad, but other fathers who happened to be in the restaurant jumped in to help detain the offender.
Lane attempted to escape the blows from the angry father, making a mad dash to the exit with his face covered in blood. Of course, such a sight immediately caught the attention of other men in the restaurant, many of whom are also protective fathers. Within seconds, a multitude of dads swarmed Lane, accosting him in the parking lot and pummeling him several times before he finally relented.
Douglas Lane desperately tried to evade the group of men. However, he was quickly tackled to the ground by several fathers, who then proceeded to detain him until the police arrived. Video footage captured the registered s*x offender sitting defeated on the lawn outside of the restaurant as a crowd of determined men surrounds and confront him.
Witnesses say the group of dads tackled Lane in the parking lot and restrained him until police arrived.
Photos of the incident show Lane sitting on the ground with a bloodied shirt and face as he awaited police.
Lane reportedly told police after he was detained that he was in the women's room because he had to use the bathroom really badly and didn't realize he had entered the wrong one.
The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigators confirmed that Lane was registered as a s*x offender in 2008. He was first convicted in 2004 for secretly peeping at two children aged 8 and 9. He was again convicted of secretly peeing into another room at a victim who was 18 years or older.
Lane was previously convicted of voyeurism in South Carolina in 1997 as well as failure to register as a s*x offender in 1999. He has been charged with peeping at least eight times prior to the most recent incident.
Most fathers would agree that Lane got off easy with only a bloody nose to show for it. In fact, if Lane hadn't tried to flee in the first place, he may have suffered far worse consequences for his actions.
S*x offenders are constantly entering and exiting the justice system and victimizing women and children after being given every opportunity at freedom. It's safe to say that after eight previous episodes of alleged voyeurism, Lane isn't going to stop simply because another s*xual offense is added to his record.
