Suspect wanted in three feces-throwing incidents arrested

BT Toronto | posted Wednesday, Nov 27th, 2019

Toronto police say the suspect wanted in three separate incidents in which a bucket of feces was dumped on a person over the past four days has been arrested.

The first incident happened at the University of Toronto’s Robarts Library on Friday, where a man assaulted a woman and a young person and poured a bucket of “liquefied fecal matter” he was carrying onto them while they were seated in the library.

In the second incident, a man assaulted a man and woman at York University’s Scott Library and again dumped a bucket of feces on one of them on Sunday around 5 p.m.

The third incident occurred outside a building at the University of Toronto shortly before midnight on Monday. Investigators once again said a bucket of feces was dumped on a female on the street. The orange bucket from Home Depot was left at the scene.

Samuel Opoku, 23, of Toronto was arrested in the Queen Street West and Spadina Avenue area on Tuesday evening.

Tips from the public led to the arrest. A police source told 680 NEWS the suspect was arrested at a shelter after someone recognized him from photos and called authorities.

Opoku has been charged with five counts each of assault with a weapon and mischief interfering with property.

He is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.
