After two previous occasions, there was yet another incident in Toronto where a bucket of feces was randomly thrown onto someone near a university campus. On Monday night near College and University, near the University of Toronto, a man was spotted throwing a bucket of feces at someone walking through the area just before midnight. The Toronto feces attack is the third time this has happened in the span of a few days. 

UPDATE: Toronto Police have released additional photos of the suspect that is reported to have thrown feces on 3 separate victims.  

EARLIER: The first incident happened on November 22, at the University of Toronto's Robarts Library. The second happened at York University's Scott Library on November 24. The most recent was on the street outside of the University of Toronto on Monday night.

Police have released photos of the suspect in the York University attack, but they have not confirmed if they believe it is the same attacker. They are currently investigating the other two instances as well.

Each time an attack has happened, the suspect is described as a black male, in his 20s or 30s, tall, with a medium build, wearing either a hard hat or a toque in all the instances.

Last night, he was wearing a yellow hard hat, a blue shirt, and gloves.

He appeared to have fled eastbound on College St. and tossed the orange bucket on the sidewalk, which was gathered as evidence. 

"We are investigating to see whether or not it is one in the same," Police Chief Mark Saunders told CP24

"We’ve got photos from York U that we’ve put out... The quality of the photos are pretty good too so the appeal to the public is if you can identify that person, please call us and let us know. There definitely will be an apprehension." 

Witnesses in the first two events have said that the guy randomly walked up to the victims and poured the fecal matter on their heads. 

 

Toronto Police are asking anyone with information on these three incidents to contact the police.
