Los Angeles, California.- A homeless man threw a bucket of "hot" diarrhea at a woman in Los Angeles near the Hollywood Walk of Fame, an unprovoked attack that left her with PTSD, he said this week.
Heidi Van Tassel said he was about to drive home from a Thai restaurant near the famous tourist area in April when the alleged aggressor, Jere Blessings, took her out of his vehicle, the NBC4 news station reported.
He pulled her toward the center of the street, where he threw a bucket of stool over his head, he said. “It was diarrhea. Hot liquid, ”Van Tassel told NBC4.RELATED
I was soaked, and it was getting out of my eyelashes and in my eyes.
Referring to the amount of feces used in the attack, the paramedics who treated her said that "it seemed that the man was saving him for a month," according to Van Tassel.
She said she was rushed to the Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital, where she was examined for infectious diseases, NBC4 reported.
It is very traumatic. The post-traumatic stress disorder I am dealing with is beyond all that I have felt, Van Tassel told the news station.
There must be some kind of help for the victims of these crimes. "Blessings, who was described as a transient who suffers from a mental illness, was arrested on charges of aggression and imprisoned, the media reported.
He was sent by a judge to a residential center for people with mental health problems, but was released in August, which concerns Van Tassel, according to the news station.
"What is the next thing he will do to someone?" She said. "If I had a knife, I sure would have stabbed myself."
