Poop Thrower Charged With Sex Abuse at His Arraignment, Authorities Say

UPPER EAST SIDE — The man who threw feces at a woman's face and shoved poop down another's pants last week was charged with sex abuse and harassment at his arraignment on Saturday, officials said.

Ekwan Hill, 42, was charged with sexual abuse, menacing, public urination and harassment, according to a criminal complaint. 

The court also ordered Hill to complete a psychiatric exam, and its results will be discussed at his next court date on Aug. 19, according to authorities.

His bail was set at $15,000 cash or $90,000 bond. He was being held at the Manhattan Detention Complex on White Street in Lower Manhattan.

His attorney did not immediately return a call for comment on Thursday. 

Hill was arrested on July 1 at a Brooklyn shelter after a Department of Homeless Services officer recognized him from surveillance photos released by police, authorities said. During the arrest, police found Hill's locker at the shelter filled with latex gloves and a T-shirt that Hill was seen wearing in one of the surveillance videos.

His first attack took place at 2:30 p.m. on June 27, when he walked up to a 33-year-old woman on East 91st Street and rubbed feces into her face and mouth with his open hand. Then he threw more excrement at her and another person and fled, according to NYPD officials and the complaint.

Just hours later, at roughly 6:13 p.m., Hill grabbed a 27-year-old woman by the waist on East 74th Street and pushed feces down her pants and smeared it on her butt, the complaint states.

Video surveillance showed Hill throwing a pair of latex gloves onto the sidewalk as he fled the the second scene.

Hill has 21 priors, including charges of assault and criminal possession of marijuana, police said.
