'Hot diarrhea' dumped on random women's head by disturbed homeless man

Heidi Van Tassel was getting into her auto after going out for a Thai meal near the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, when a homeless man sprinted towards her and pulled her out of the vehicle, before dumping a bucket of hot faeces on her head. "I was soaked, and it was coming off my eyelashes and into my eyes", Van Tassel said when speaking about the ordeal to the broadcaster.

Paramedics who treated her said it "looked like the man was saving it up for a month". She will need to be retested every three months. Court records showed Blessings was a transient who suffered from schizophrenia and psychotic disorders. She saidthe amount of PTSD she is dealing with is beyond anything that she's ever felt, which is why there needs to be some kind of help for the victims of these crimes.

He was sent by a judge to a residential facility for people with mental health issues, but was released in August, which concerns Van Tassel, according to the news station.
