A crowd of people packed a Toronto courtroom Wednesday to see a man accused of throwing buckets of feces on five people in the city.
Samuel Opoku, 23, was arrested near Queen Street West and Spadina Avenue on Tuesday evening, after allegedly throwing multiple buckets of liquefied fecal matter on people over the past few days.
Close to 50 people, including several university students, showed up for Opoku’s first court appearance at Old City Hall.
Many people were unable to fit into the small bail courtroom. The court is reportedly looking for another room to hold the crowd.
The hearing was supposed to start at 10 a.m. but has been delayed.
In the most recent attack, a man threw feces from a bucket over a woman near College and McCaul streets Monday night, police said.
Opoku is facing five charges of assault with a weapon and five charges of mischief interfering with property, police said.
