Samuel Opoku was arrested in the area of Queen Street West and Spadina Avenue at 6 p.m., though police did not reveal the exact location where the 23-year-old was taken into custody. Opoku was charged with five counts of assault with a weapon and five of mischief interfering with property.

The feces attacker will appear in a downtown courtroom at 10 a.m. on Wednesday morning.

The first throw came on Friday. Feces were thrown at an individual inside the Roberts Library cafeteria at the University of Toronto.

A statement from the university called the incident “shocking”, adding that “assistance was provided to those affected.”

On Sunday excrement was thrown once again in York University’s Scott Library, hitting what appeared to be a laptop on a desk as well as an empty chair in a video taken after the incident.

news release went out Monday evening saying that on Sunday at 5 p.m. officers responded to a call for an assault taking place in the York library.

A man entered the library carrying a bucket and poured liquified fecal matter on an unsuspecting person seated at a table before fleeing on foot, Toronto Police said. ■
