A male suspect was said to have smashed a bag of feces in a woman's face during rush hour in a Bronx, New York, subway station last week, the New York Post reported.
What are the details?
Surveillance video captured the moment an unnamed suspect casually walked up to a woman sitting on a bench inside the station and squashed a plastic bag filled with poo up against her face.
The victim, a 43-year-old woman who remains unidentified at the time of this reporting, said that the suspect then went on to smear the contents of the bag on the back of her head and onto her clothing.
The suspect took off on foot, and police are continuing to seek him for questioning in connection with the disturbing incident.
