A third incident in which a bucket of feces was dumped on a person has been reported outside a building at the University of Toronto and police believe all three are linked.

Police were called to the scene on the north side of College Street west of University Avenue just before midnight Monday.

Investigators said a bucket of feces was dumped on a female on the street. The orange bucket from Home Depot was left at the scene.

The suspect, described as a man in his 30s wearing a yellow construction 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 Toronto university since late last week.

A student studying in York University’s Scott Library had a bucket of “liquefied fecal matter” dumped on them on Sunday around 5 p.m.

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 similar incident happened at U of T’s Robarts Library in which a man poured the contents of a bucket he was carrying onto two unsuspecting people who were seated in the library.

Officers are treating all the incidents as linked and believe the suspect is the same man allegedly responsible for all three.
