- Claudia Rocha was visiting Westfield Chermside, Queensland, with her son

A mother issued a warning after filming a man following her and her three-year-old son from a Westfield parking lot to women's restrooms.
Claudia Rocha was visiting a Westfield shopping center in Chermside, Queensland around 6 p.m. on Tuesday when a man followed her.
Mrs. Rocha, a broker, told Daily Mail Australia that she was being shaken by the ordeal.
She said she first noticed a man watching her and her son as she drove into the parking lot, but didn't think about it when the entrance to the center was behind her.

Her son climbed from the back seat to the front seat to leave the car from the driver's side of the car.
When Mrs. Rocha looked up, she saw the man next to the car stare at the seat where Jordan had been.
He then followed them into the mall, delivering Mrs. Rocha.
& # 39; I thought maybe he just went to the stores, but I just had a terrible feeling, so I went through the poles and he followed every step I took, & # 39; she said.
Mrs. Rocha told her son Jordan to use the bathroom, so she took him to the female toilets.
& # 39; I left the cabinet door open in case something happened that others could see, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; I squatted in front of Jordan and when he pulled up his pants, I saw the man in the bathroom.
& # 39; So I said: & # 39; Excuse me, & that caught the attention of the other women in the bathroom and he left.
& # 39; I thought he might just go to the stores, but I just had a terrible feeling, so I went through the poles and he followed every step & she said
Mrs. Rocha said the other women in the bathroom gathered around her while the man waited outside the bathroom and walked her out.
She said one of the other women suggested that she would call police and center security.
& # 39; He must have heard that, because then he no longer followed us, & # 39; she said.
Mrs. Rocha then filmed the man who looked at her and the group.
She said she has since received messages from people who have seen the man in Brisbane.
A woman who claimed to be the man's family told Mrs. Rocha that he was mentally ill and had spent four years in a psychiatric ward in New South Wales.
& # 39; They have no idea how he got out or why he's here, & # 39; Mrs. Rocha wrote online.
& # 39; His family has not seen him for a long time, but if you see him, please contact the police and ambulance so that he doesn't hurt himself or put someone back in this position and get the help he needs needs. & # 39;
The terrifying ordeal comes after guard Mohammad Hassan Al Bayati was imprisoned for kidnapping a young girl (photo) in a shopping mall and her sexually abused
The terrifying ordeal comes after guard Mohammad Hassan Al Bayati was imprisoned for abducting a young girl in a mall and sexually abused her.
Al Bayati, 30, led the girl away from a playground at DFO Homebush in Sydney in December 2016, before she touched her underwear and exposed his penis in a stairwell.
Eleven minutes later he brought her back to the playground where her seven-year-old sister was crying because she couldn't find her younger brother or sister.
The girls' mother, who had returned from shopping, also waited there and was soon honored by Al Bayati, who had the guts to tell her about the dangers of leaving children behind.
On Tuesday, he was sentenced to four and a half years, but could be released by mid-2021.
