The “Bowel Movement Bandit” is still at large after a string of vandalisms that involve him dropping his pants and defecating on the cars of residents in one Akron, Ohio, neighborhood.
According to a report from News 5, the man has been at work since 2012 and has engaged in multiple repeat attacks, including seven times to one woman and six to a male resident.
Until recently, no one knew what the man looked like. However, a resident named Linda — you can see her testimony in the video below — and her husband were able to capture the man in the act, defecating on their daughter’s car.
Akron Police were able to connect this latest report to 18 others, all in the same neighborhood.
“Jacob” was the guy hit six times.
“He did it on the hood every time. And then the one time, he took it and he smeared it all over the hood, the windshield, the mirrors, the window, the door handles, and the gas tank cover.”
Lt. Rick Edwards of the Akron Police thought it would be “unusual” for the “Bowel Movement Bandit” to have a problem with all the people in the geographical area.
He felt it was far more likely that the vandalisms are happening as a result of a mental health issue “or he’s just sick,” Edwards added.
If the serial pooper can be tracked down, it’s unlikely that he’ll face any serious criminal repercussions. Akron Police believe he would be charged with criminal mischief or criminal damaging, both of which are misdemeanors.
All of the attacks happened in the early morning hours between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. as best that authorities can tell.
Shockingly, this isn’t the only time the Inquisitr has reported on a serial pooper. In April, 2014, there was this story about a Michigan pooper, who has hit a playground in Ypsilanti multiple times.
This individual has been accused of pooping on playground equipment — usually slides — and he also remains at large.
The Department of Public Works in the city is checking the slides daily for fecal matter and are instructed to clean any human waste they discover. The suspect “works” at night. After reports surfaced, Tony DeGiusti, Ypsilanti’s police chief, sent out a communication to all his officers about the incidents given that they are a public health concern.
To date, no culprit has been found.
Do you think people like this and the “Bowel Movement Bandit” should be tried as felons?
