A 21 year old Chicago area woman was the victim of an attack on a train by a man who hit her in the face and head with, as she describes, “…a sock full of his poop”.
The woman got on a train headed to Chicago when the assailant boarded the same car. “The guy got on with me at (the) Oak Park (station),” the victim said, requesting anonymity. “I wasn’t really paying attention.” She says that she found her seat, got out her cell phone and began to send a text. “Next stop (at Austin), he throws something in my face” she told the Pioneer Press.
“He had a sock full of his poop on me,” said the 21-year-old college student.“It was everywhere; on my face, my hair, my clothes.”
There was another rider on the train that tried to follow the attacker after the woman’s screams got him to run off, but he got off the train and ran away. Police searched for a young male, about 20 with facial hair and have several frames of video of who they believe is the attacker.
The woman claimed called the attack the “biggest degradation I’ve ever experience. I wish he had just hit me”. Unfortunately for her the worst part was that nobody on the scene had anything for her to wipe off her face and that paramedics didn’t really have anything to really clean her up. They only had some water and towels.
