A Toronto man has been arrested for throwing liquefied human waste on people in apparently random attacks on university campuses and a downtown street in Canada’s largest city.
The man is accused of throwing a bucket of liquefied fecal matter at passersby in three separate incidents that took place between Friday afternoon and late Monday night in Toronto.
Police said the man was charged with five counts of assault with a weapon and five counts of mischief interfering with property.
It started on Nov 22, according to the police, when he allegedly emptied a bucket of liquified faeces over a mother and child seated at a library in University of Toronto campus.
Again, on Nov 25, a woman and a man, in separate incidents, in the area of College and McCaul streets (also in the University of Toronto area) got the same horrific surprise.
He also emptied a bucket of human waste on a woman on a downtown Toronto street.
Toronto Police released security footage of the suspect — a man in a hat, carrying a bucket — and an arrest was made on Nov. 26.
Toronto mayor John Tory thanked the police for their quick response.”I hope this arrest will help calm concern on campuses and across the city,” he said in a tweet.
