Suspect in a string of feces attacks in Toronto

Suspect has staged three attacks so far

TORONTO, Canada (KYMA, KSWT, KECY/NBC News) - Toronto police are searching for a suspect in a string of disgusting attacks. Police says the perpetrator actually assaults his victims with feces.

In the most recent incident, investigators say the suspect dumped an entire bucket of waste on a woman near the University of Toronto Monday night.

He left only one clue behind - a large, orange Home Depot utility bucket. Police describe its contents as "liquified fecal matter."

The same man in suspected in two similar incidents. Both involve human waste. Both happened near university campuses.

Police describe the suspect as a black man in his 20's or 30's. Beyond that, they have few leads.

"Right now what we have is all three have been done by the same description of person. In fact in the second incident at Scott Library, we do have security camera footage." says Officer V. Wong.

Toronto mayor, John Tory, calls the assaults "inexplicable." Residents call them shocking.

Another man was baffled by the behavior.

"I think its just super disgusting and really demeaning for someone to do that. Because they have to plan something like that. I think no one just does that I think spontaneously." said one woman.

"Its ridiculous like I don't know how you get that idea. C'mon now, I think we are all humans, we gotta have a bit more respect than that. Like that's disgusting, that's gross. So I can't imagine somebody actually doing that." he said.

Mayor Tory says he's ordered police to track down the suspect.
