A man accused of throwing buckets of feces in a series of random attacks on five unsuspecting victims has been apprehended.
Samuel Opoku, 23, allegedly dumped buckets filled with “liquefied fecal matter” on the stunned victims during the attacks, VICE reported.
The first incident occurred at the University of Toronto’s Robarts Library at approximately 5:20 p.m. on Nov. 22.
Opoku entered the library carrying a bucket, then made his way over to two individuals who were sitting at a table.
He dumped the bucket of liquified feces on them, then fled the library on foot, CP24 reported.
A witness said that the “concentrated feces-like smell” within the library was overpowering, according to VICE.
Opoku struck again on Nov. 24, when he waltzed into Scott Library on Keele Street and poured “liquified fecal matter” onto a man and a woman, Toronto police said in a press release.
Another attack occurred outside the University of Toronto sometime around midnight on Nov. 25, the New York Post reported.
“A young girl had a bucket of waste, feces, dumped on her,” Toronto Police Constable David Hopkinson said, according to the paper. “I don’t know what to say, I’m at a loss, this is absolutely disgusting.”
Toronto police were able to identify Opoku as the attacker, and apprehended him in the area of Spadina Avenue and Queen Street West at approximately 6 p.m. on Tuesday, according to the press release.
He has been charged with five counts of mischief interfere with property and five counts of assault with a weapon.
