Feces-stained man hid in portable toilet tank, escaped chase

Boulder police are looking for a man who hid in the tank of a portable toilet at a yoga festival before running off.

A woman at the Hanuman Festival went into the portable toilet Friday and noticed something moving in the tank when she lifted the lid, according to police spokeswoman Kim Kobel. The woman exited and asked a man nearby to look inside the tank.

The man told police he saw something moving under a tarp, and when he left the toilet he heard it lock from the inside.

A security supervisor then waited outside for the person to emerge. When he did, the supervisor tried to get him to sit down, Kobel said, but he ran off, covered in feces.

The suspect, who was not wearing a shirt or shoes when he came out of the toilet, was described as a white man in his 20s wearing gray sweatpants, around 6-foot-5 to 6-foot-8-inches tall with a skinny build and black hair.

Witnesses also said he had cuts on his back and arms. Some at the festival said he might be a transient who goes by the name "Sky."

Kobel said police are not sure how he was able to squeeze into the tank or what he was doing there. He is being sought on suspicion of criminal attempt to make unlawful sexual contact.

    A man's got to have his goals, I guess.

    How about a simpler description? "Man, covered in shit who smells really bad"? Having been in some less than sanitary public toilets I don't think a bath of bleach would take away the smell - or taste!

    > police are not sure how he was able to squeeze into the tank

    Some guy attending a yoga festival turns out to be a contortionist? Whoah, what are the odds??

    It's good to see Boulder staying weird. Also, the hippies appear to be making a comeback.

    I love this society of ours where anyone capable of sustaining a casual jog is able to elude identification or capture.

      What, did you want to be the hero that stops the guy covered in festival-goers' shit?

      • Jim Strathmeyer says:

        No, but I wouldn't mind watching where he went. Wait here, I'll be right back.

    You will be pleased to know the peeper's reign of terror is over.

    This news report from Channel 7 shows that this guy is decidedly a few gigs short of a terabyte. He referred to his multiple acts of voyeurism in the Boulder area as "million dollar views," and "little slices of divinity," among other things. One wonders why he didn't just go look at Internet porn like everybody else...
