DeVito said the victim came out of the bathroom and told his guardian.
"He came out. He was very startled, very shaken, as you can imagine and he told his guardian he thought the party in the stall next to him had a mirror," DeVito explained.
The guardian asked for help from people passing by the check out the suspect in the bathroom. When the suspect came out, store security kept him until police arrived.
Drzal was charged with voyeurism, risk of injury and breach of peace in the second degree.
