A masked person is smearing feces on cars and homes in Bridgeport, police say

CHICAGO — Chicago detectives are investigating after feces was found smeared in different locations in the Bridgeport neighborhood.

According to neighbors, around 5 a.m. on May 25th a balding man with glasses was seen walking down Emerald Street with a duffel bag full of paper towels.

He then walked away.

The car belonged to Tony Wu.

“From everything I’ve gathered it’s happening really early in the morning,” he said.

Wu, who is is training to be a police officer, has been on the look out for the man responsible.  He alerted neighbors on Facebook and posted surveillance video.

He said at least a dozen other neighbors have reported similar incidents.

They said the man sometimes wears a mask and has been targeting homes and cars since March.
