A tough mother stopped at nothing until she chased and caught the “sick pervert” who spied on her daughter while the 12-year-old girl was in a changing room.
The incident happened at around 7:27 p.m. at a Rue 21 near 1200 E. and 3300 S. Hudson. Lt. Hudson with the Salt Lake City Police Department said the victim’s mother, along with a store employee caught the suspect with his phone, looking under the stall where the girl was changing. He appeared to be recording with his phone.
The suspect has been identified as 36-year-old Jorge Leon-Alfaro. He was arrested and charged with one count of voyeurism-committed against a child under 14 years of age, which is considered as a third-degree felony.

The feisty mother, Doris Stiles-Scown ran after Leon-Alfaro, chased him until he was caught. She took a video of him outside where he was down on the ground. Stiles-Scown could be heard talking and lecturing the pervert while a video of him was being taken showing him sitting down on the ground, seemingly embarrassed at being recorded.
The mother could be heard in the video talking in an emotional voice, sharing how she caught him spying on her daughter, and how she made sure to catch him. She told him he won’t get away with what he’s despicably done to a child. She said: “Not today, buddy. Not today. I’m not gonna make sure your face gets out so that you’re not in any more stall looking at little girl’s dressing.”
Leon-Alfaro was looking down, trying to hide his face and appearing embarrassed in the video. Stiles-Scown was not having it, and told him: “Look at the camera! I’m gonna make sure you go viral!”
The feisty mother also told the “sick pervert” that she considers him “lucky” because as much as she wanted to hurt him for what he did to her daughter, she had enough restraint not to be violent. She deplored, however, that on the other hand, his form of violation against her daughter would leave a permanent scar on her child.
