Homeless Man Dumps ‘Hot Diarrhea’ On Woman In Los Angeles
California’s homeless controversy just got a whole lot worse. This after a woman was taken to the hospital following a homeless man dumping his diarrhea on her head. The crime occurred near the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the woman says LAPD hasn’t been much help.
Heidi Van Tassel had just finished eating dinner with friends when she went to her parked car. A man dragged her from the car and began pouring a ‘hot liquid’ on her head. Van Tassel was dragged almost to the center of the street.
“It was diarrhea. Hot liquid. I was soaked, and it was coming off my eyelashes and into my eyes,” Van Tassel said via NBC Los Angeles. “Paramedics who came to treat me said there was so much of it on me, that it looked like the man was saving it up for a month.”
She was rushed to Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital and checked for diseases. She’ll have to receive a plethora of follow up treatments given the severity of the attack.

“It was all inside my car because it was so much. He just kept pouring it and splattering it all over me,” she said.
Van Tassel claims the LAPD has been virtually no help.
“It’s so traumatic. The PTSD that I’m dealing with is beyond anything that I’ve ever felt,” Van Tassel said. “There needs to be some kind of help for the victims of these crimes.”
Van Tassel doesn’t seek jail time for the man, but mental health care. The Los Angeles City Attorney’s office says the man is now back to roaming the streets.
“I will never, ever, forget his face,” Van Tassel said. “What’s the next thing he’s going to do somebody? If he would’ve had a knife, for sure he would’ve stabbed me.”
