A Duluth man who is accused of videotaping a Lawrenceville woman in a dressing room at a south Forsyth Kohl’s earlier this year was recently indicted by a Forsyth County Grand Jury on felony charges related to the incident.

Daniel Zakkam, 39, of Duluth, was indicted Oct. 9 on two charges of invasion of privacy after he allegedly used “a cellphone, a device, without the consent of the person observed … [to] observe and photograph the activities of [the victim,] which occurred in a dressing room at Kohl’s, 3630 Peachtree Parkway Suwanee, Georgia,” the indictment said.

Deputies responded to the store on March 8 after the victim “observed an iPhone camera filming her from over the [dressing room’s] divider wall,” the Forsyth County News previously reported.

According to an incident report, after seeing the phone, the woman confronted Zakkam, who fled through the store in an attempt to elude her.

Before he got away, she was able to take a photo of him, which the sheriff’s office published in the hopes of identifying Zakkam.

Deputies arrested Zakkam at his Duluth home on March 22 after “the public was able to identify the man, and detectives were able to confirm the identity,” Deputy Doug Rainwater, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office, said.

Zakkam later posted a $5,610 bond after being transported to the Forsyth County Jail.

Attempts to locate and contact Zakkam by the Forsyth County News were unsuccessful.

Forsyth County Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Bagley will preside over the cause, for which no dates have yet been set.
