TORONTO — A man accused of tossing fecal matter on five people is due in a Toronto courtroom today.
Samuel Opoku is charged with five counts each of assault with a weapon and mischief.
The 23-year-old was arrested Tuesday night in relation to the three alleged attacks.
Dozens of people — including students from the University of Toronto, the site of one of the alleged incidents — crowded outside the packed courtroom Wednesday morning.
Police allege a man threw liquefied fecal matter on a woman and a young person on Friday at U of T’s John P. Robarts Research Library.
The same suspect is believed to have attacked a man and a woman at the Scott Library on Sunday, and a woman at a downtown intersection Monday night.
