ikimasu / iku is used with the destination "[person] wa [place] ni ikimasu".
Therefore, you cannot say (Tanaka-san wa) itta. (Tanaka-san wa) icchatta is appropriate in this context.

mimasu / miru "to see, watch, look" is used when you see/watch/look something intentionally or on purpose.

See Building Up Conversation : Level 3 Chapter 7 -te shimaimasu, -chau, -chatta
