Being attacked with weird, even gross substances isn’t something new to Torontonians. The 2019 Peepeepoopoo man saga still haunts university and college campus goers across the city.
Lewis appeared in a Toronto courtroom on Sunday, and police say they believe there are more victims. Anyone with information is being asked to contact police or to call Crime Stoppers.
