HOLLAND, Mich. — The man suspected of trying to take cellphone images of a woman in a bathroom stall at a Meijer store now stands formally charged. 

Jarrid Percy-LaHaie, 18, of Holland Township was arraigned Tuesday in 58th District Court on two counts: surveilling an unclothed person and habitual offender third offense.

Percy-LaHaie has been in the Ottawa County Jail since his arrest October 5 on an invasion-of-privacy complaint. Police said in a news release the suspect fled when store management made contact with him. He was arrested that same evening. The Meijer store is located at 3320 West Shore Drive in Holland Township.

The alleged victim – who didn’t provide her name – told FOX 17 last Friday she “feels ashamed and embarrassed” about the incident, and now she’s afraid to use public restrooms in the future.

The sheriff’s office says Percy-LaHaie’s bond was set by the judge at $75,000.
