(KMOV) -- A Farmington, Missouri man was arrested after police said he was caught watching an 11-year-old boy while he went to the bathroom at a store in Desloge.

Douglas Ray Devore, 46, is accused of looking at the boy over a bathroom stall in a Wal-Mart restroom on June 5.

Police say surveillance photos at Wal-Mart show Devore following the boy into the bathroom Sunday. Inside the restroom Devore allegedly stood on a toilet and peered over the wall at the boy who had his pants down.

The mother of the victim chased down the suspect through the Wal-Mart parking lot all the way to Highway 67. She said that once the fifth grader told her what happened she spotted Devore and started following him.

Devore was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and invasion of privacy.

On Tuesday, Devore was also charged with deviate sexual assault stemming from an incident that took place in February 2011 in Farmington, Missouri.
