Two separate attacks involving feces on university campuses in Toronto are being investigated by the Toronto Police Service. 

Both incidents took place at university libraries and involved an unidentified suspect who poured a substance that smelled of feces and urine on innocent people. 

The first attack took place at the University of Toronto’s Robarts Library on Nov. 22. Witnesses claim that a man entered the library with a bucket and poured it on a man who was minding his own business.

Several days later, on Sunday, a man entered the York University Scott Library and poured a similar substance on another man and his laptop. 

Police are currently looking into whether the two incidents are linked and the separate investigations are collaborating to find the suspect. 

One SnapChat video of the York University incident allegedly shows a man standing beside his laptop right after the attack occurred, while another video of the aftermath depicts a brown substance on his belongings and chair.

“York University Security Services responded to the incident. We have reached out to the victim of the assault to offer support. We are also investigating the incident and working with Toronto Police Service,”  said York University spokesperson Yanni Dagonas. 

Police have not yet released a description of the suspect or the victims involved.
