SAN DIEGO, March 3 (UPI) -- A man dressed in a Barbie costume allegedly attempted to sexually assault a woman in a Big Lots bathroom in San Diego.

A woman was going into the stall in a bathroom in Big Lots when a man climbed under the stall door and latched onto the woman. The woman fought back and was able to run out of the bathroom and call for help. The man was approached by security, but he brandished a weapon that looked like a screwdriver.

He was reportedly wearing a Barbie costume he stole from the store and no shoes. He ran from the store and a week later, cops arrested 40-year-old suspect Gregory Schwartz, who was taken into custody for the assault.
