Troy police have tracked down a locked room lurker who allegedly attacked a woman at LA Fitness.

Police say this guy was targeting victims as they showered in the women's locker room.

At the LA Fitness on West Maple Road in Troy, police say an unsuspecting woman got the scare of her life while showering in the women's locker room.

She noticed a man standing nearby watching her.

After telling the man he was in the wrong area, police say he came back again and suddenly lunged at her.

She managed to get away and call for help.

The late May attack led to the arrest of the accused lurker, 49-year-old Luis Augusto Ramirez of Southfield.

He has been charged with indecent exposure, illegal surveillance and assault and battery.

Ramirez is locked up on $50,000 bond. Thankfully no one was hurt.
