Toronto police have caught the man behind a string of incidents involving assault with poo.
Samuel Opoku, 23, was arrested yesterday after his attacks left city residents on high alert for nearly a week. Nicknamed the Mad Pooper, he has been charged with five counts of mischief that interfere with property and five counts of assault with a weapon. That weapon, by the way, was “liquefied fecal matter.” Might he suggested he also be charged with ‘Administering a Noxious Substance‘.
Opoku is accused of throwing the fecal matter from a bucket on at least three separate occasions:
- – on Friday, November 22, 2019, [Opoku] entered John P. Robarts Research Library located at 130 St. George Street and assaulted a woman and a young person and threw contents from a bucket which was described as liquefied fecal matter- on Sunday, November 24, 2019, [Opoku] entered Scott Library located at 4700 Keele Street and assaulted a woman and a man, and threw contents from a bucket which was described as liquefied fecal matter
– on Monday, November 25, 2019, [Opoku] approached a woman in the area of College Street and McCaul Street and threw contents from a bucket which was described as liquefied fecal matter
Perhaps most disturbingly, Opoku looks thoroughly stoked in his actions:
Mayor John Tory spoke on behalf of everyone in calling Opoku’s actions “completely inexplicable.”
“I don’t know why someone would do such a thing,” said the mayor. It is unlikely we will ever get an answer.
