Seattle Police Detectives need your help to identify a suspect who allegedly threw bags of feces at the residence of a city councilwoman on multiple occasions.

SPD said Oct. 13, officers were called to the Leschi neighborhood for a report of harassment with possible political motivations.

Councilwoman Kshama Sawant said her residence has been targeted multiple times in October, with an unknown suspect throwing plastic bags filled with human excrement into her yard between 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.

Officers said earlier in the evening, friends of the victim were watching the home when the suspect threw a plastic bag, containing several individual bags of suspected human feces, into the yard.

Friends of Sawant reportedly confronted the suspect and snapped multiple photos as he ran away.

Witnesses described the suspect, as an Asian man, approximately 5-feet-4 inches tall.

Seattle Police said at this time, the department has not found any evidence this case would meet the city or state standards for hate crime laws, but SPD will follow available leads should new information arise.

If you have any information about these incidents, call the SPD tip line at 206-233-5000.
