    Schull was trying on clothes when she noticed a bag in her dressing room. Thinking someone left it there by accident, she didn’t think twice about it and continued to try on clothes she told NBC 7 San Diego.

    After approximately 15 to 20 minutes, she says she noticed something strange.

    She saw a dime-sized hole in the bag. When she took a closer look, she says she saw a camera.

    As she tried to grab the bag, Schull said a man in the stall next to her grabbed the bag as well.

    He took off and she followed him screaming she said.

    Schull said employees of the store stopped the man but she says they didn’t find a camera so they let him go.

    San Diego police officers confirmed they are investigating the incident.

    Schull said she plans to follow up in the hopes that whoever is responsible is caught.

    NBC 7 San Diego has contacted the Forever 21 corporate offices in Los Angeles and is awaiting their reply.
