Church Hill: Police say 10 "angry women" detained an accused changing room peeper at a thrift store in East Tennessee until officers arrived. Twenty-year-old Bradley J. Wallen was charged with two misdemeanours, observation without consent and photographing in violation of privacy.

Church Hill police chief Mark Johnson told the Kingsport Times-News that a small hole between the men`s and women`s changing rooms at the Flashbacks and Reruns thrift store was allegedly discovered by a woman who dropped something on the floor.

Johnson said "10 angry women" prevented Wallen from leaving by blocking a rear door.

Wallen was released after his arrest Tuesday. Jail records do not show that he has hired a lawyer and a Thursday telephone call to his residence was not answered.
