Toronto police have arrested the guy who reportedly threw feces at five people

He's being charged with five counts of assault with a weapon and five counts of mischief

Toronto police have arrested the man who allegedly threw feces at five people between Friday afternoon and late Monday night.
 


23-year-old Samuel Opoku has been accused of throwing buckets of liquefied fecal matter at Torontonians in three separate incidents, and last night, he was arrested around Queen Street West and Spadina Avenue.

According to police, Opoku has been charged with five counts of assault with a weapon, in addition to five counts of mischief interfering with property. A news release reveals that a man walked into John P. Robarts Research Library on the University of Toronto campus, where he emptied the feces-filled bucket on a woman and a child at a table. A similar incident happened at Scott Library at York University on Sunday, and College and McCaul streets on Monday.
 


Constable Alex Li explained to CBC Toronto that the investigation is still in its early stages although the arrest has been made. “It’s disturbing,” Li explained. “It definitely is. It’s very disturbing. Let’s just call it what it is.”

Opoku is set to appear in court at 10 a.m. this morning.
