TORONTO — So there’s this arc that happens sometimes with a crime where, no matter how serious it is, in the immediate aftermath, it feels like a joke. It’s an instinct maybe — the one where dark comedy comes from, and gross-out comedy — that instinct to, upon hearing something awful, just laugh.

On Tuesday, walking out of Robarts Library at the University of Toronto, Stevie He indulged that instinct, just for a moment. “It’s kind of funny,” the life sciences student said, chuckling. “I think most people think of it as a … joke.”

It’s only when you stop and really focus on the details, when you picture the victim and imagine, for a moment, that it might have been you, that the actual horror sets in. He laughed. But he added, quickly, that his roommate is afraid to go outside. As for himself, “even now I stay away from high buildings,” he said, “because I’m afraid someone will dump”— he gestured — “you know.”

At this point, it’s unlikely there’s anyone in the city, or anywhere else in Canada, that doesn’t know what he was talking about.

On Monday night, a man dumped a bucket of what police believe was liquefied waste — whether animal or human they aren’t yet sure — on a woman just after she left a U of T building on the south edge of campus. It was the third feces attack on a Toronto campus in four days, all pulled off, police believe, by the same man.

The attacks have left the city’s thousands of university students — many already hepped up on exam stress and winter blues — poised somewhere between fear, shock and dark hilarity. With the attacker still on the loose, meanwhile, many are worried they could be next.

Sheilla Shojaie was working at the help desk at Robarts Library at the U of T when the first attack took place on Friday. Just after 5 p.m., one of the library caretakers came rushing into her office, his face a mask of horror and disgust. “He looked like he just came back from a war,” Shojaie said. “He was like ‘Do you guys have Lysol? Someone just threw s–t on the second floor.’”

In the most recent attack , police say a man dumped a bucket of fecal matter on a “girl” in the College St. and University Ave. area near a University of Toronto building just before midnight Monday.

At first Shojaie thought it was funny. “I think most of us did,” she said. “We were like, ‘What? That’s so ridiculous.’” But as the details trickled out, it began to seem a lot more serious. Police say the man ran into the library holding a large bucket. Inside the library, he dumped a heap of liquefied feces onto two people sitting together at a table.

Over the weekend, the attack was the talk of campus. It was all over Instagram, Reddit and Facebook, said Joseph Hung, a first year East Asian studies student. Shojaie heard about it from friends at other schools and even people in the United States. “People (were) saying ‘That guy should get help. I hope he gets caught,’” she said.

And then, on Sunday, he struck again. A man matching the same description walked into the Scott Library at York University, at the north end of the city, and dumped another bucket of liquefied waste on a man sitting at a table. Security images later released by police show the grinning suspect, in a grey hoodie and black toque, walking out of the library holding a bucket covered in some kind of bag. His smile, in the pictures, is huge and unmistakable.

The next night, it happened once more. A man jogging down College Street just before midnight saw someone rush diagonally from the direction of campus toward the northwest corner of College and University Avenue. On the sidewalk, not far from the Leslie L. Dan Pharmacy Building, he dumped a full bucket full of waste onto a woman waiting to cross the road. “It was feces,” said Toronto Police Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook. “But we don’t know if it is, in fact, human feces.”

Douglas-Cook said police are aware of online rumours that the victims may have been targeted because of their race. “We don’t believe, at this point, that that’s the case,” she said.

On Monday night, the suspect left his bucket behind before running east down College Street, according to the jogger. Police describe him as being in his 20s or 30s and of medium build. He was wearing a yellow construction hat and a dark blue jacket during the latest attack.

“It’s kind of scary,” said He. “My roommate and I were talking about it and he said he’d rather get robbed than get poop dumped on him. That kind of sucks.”

He said people on campus were wondering, darkly, whether this was some kind of “poop bucket challenge.”

As for Shojaie, she’s grateful some people are talking about getting the perpetrator help. “He’s probably not doing so well,” she said.
