CHELSEA — A public housing tenant hurled a bag of feces at his neighbor's door, despite an order of protection the victim had previously gotten against the thrower, the NYPD said.
The 39-year-old Elliott-Chelsea Houses resident told police she was inside her 10th Avenue apartment around 3:35 p.m. on March 31 when her neighbor tossed the poop-filled bag at her front door.
When the victim went to put the bag in the trash compactor, the neighbor and his girlfriend started “screaming and cursing at her,” police said.
The woman had gone to authorities last month to get an order of protection against the offending neighbor and told police she is fearful for her safety, the NYPD said.
No one had been arrested in connection with the incident as of Wednesday.
