"There was this man standing about a foot and a half beside me. He said, ‘Excuse me,’ and I said, ‘It's ok.’ But then I felt something warm on the back of my head," said the hair glue bandit’s latest victim, who wishes to remain anonymous. "There was this white substance on my hand. It dried instantly."
The victim says she was able to pull out her cell phone and capture video of the man who poured the glue on her.
Plus, because she didn't want him to disappear into a busy parking lot, she followed him out and took down the license plate of the car he was in. She then passed the information over to the police.
Over the past few weeks, glue victims have been studying a surveillance video taken from another attack. The latest victim claims the same man poured the glue in her hair.

HOUSTON – Passengers aboard Continental flight 128 arrived in Houston Monday with a terrifying tale to share.
As emergency vehicles rushed to the plane on the Miami tarmac, catering truck elevators were used to rescue injured passengers.
Diego Saavedra was on the plane. He said passengers and flight attendants were flying inside the cabin.
“All of a sudden, the plane like takes a dip and rises up and you see people going off their seats, people screaming,” said Saavedra. “One lady, she just came out of her seat and flew over the middle row, hit her head on the wall and landed on her back.”
Passengers took pictures inside the plane that show items falling out of the ceiling and cracked plastic.
The damage was caused by flight attendants and passengers hitting the ceiling, said John Norwood who was also on the flight.
“People who weren’t belted in flew up and hit the ceiling, so their faces and heads hit the plastics and broke the plastics all at the top,” said Norwood.
Celi Defaria hit the roof too. She has a scar that runs the length of the right side of her face.
“All of a sudden it came down. Everybody bumped heads twice because it came down again," she said. "It was terrifying. It happened in one faction of a second."
The incident occurred at 3:30 a.m. while most passengers were sleeping.
“I’ve never seen turbulence like that. I really thought we wouldn’t make it,” said Giovani Loss.
