A third incident involving feces being dumped on someone at a Toronto university has been reported.

Police said they responded to a report for an assault on College Street near University Avenue just before midnight on Monday.

Officers said a bucket of feces was dumped on a girl as she was on the street outside of one of the university buildings.

The suspect, who police have described as a tall, Black man in his 30s wearing a yellow construction hard hat, a blue shirt, and gloves, fled eastbound on College.

This is the third incident in which feces was dumped on someone in or near a local university in the past two weeks.

According to police, the suspect allegedly entered the library at York University carrying a bucket and poured the contents — which police describe as “liquefied fecal matter — onto an “unsuspecting person” who was seated at a table.

The suspect has been described as a man in his 20s with a medium build. He was wearing a black hat, blue top, light-coloured pants, and black gloves.

A spokesperson from York University told Daily Hive the school has reached out to the victim to offer them support.

“We are also investigating the incident and working with Toronto Police Service. We have not received any further reports of incidents on our property,” said the spokesperson.

Investigators have yet to confirm if all three incidents are related.
