An employee said she had tried both the women's and men's single-stall restroom doors and found them locked, but the men's door opened a few seconds after she tried it. She told police a man stood in the doorway with his pants down and winked at her.
The man told police the employee had interrupted him shaving his private parts and that he lives in a tent, so has limited use of electricity.
