According to police, the first incident they are investigating occurred on November 22 at the University of Toronto's Robarts Library.

The second incident occurred on November 24, at 5pm in Scott Library at York University.
It was reported by police that a man entered the library carrying a bucket containing feces, then he poured the contents of the bucket onto an unsuspecting person who was seated at a table.
The suspect then fled on foot.
Toronto police released surveillance camera images of the suspect from the York university incident last night. The suspect was described as being in his 20s, with a medium build. He was wearing a black hat, blue sweater, light-coloured pants and thick black gloves.
All this is happening as students begin to prepare for winter exams, a time when libraries at universities are especially busy.
I can't be the only one slightly concerned about going to class tomorrow.— Rene Caruso (@Rene_Caruso) November 26, 2019
The string of incidents have been unsettling for everyone in the city, but for students at local universities the fear of the attacks becoming a reality for them is all too real.
