Police are looking to arrest and charge a man after being accused of intentionally pooping on children’s slides at public parks, police in Michigan said.

Over the last six months, the man has been defecating on slides at the Ypsilanti Prospect Park.

Ypsilanti Police and city officials found feces on the slides and police have installed hidden cameras to try to record the suspect in the act. Local politicians described the incident as odd and deliberate.

Department of Public Works employees check the slides every day and have been cleaning the human waste. City officials have encouraged staff and residents to contact them whenever feces is discovered so they will be able to determine if there is a pattern.

“We hope to be able to capture the suspect before the start of the summer season when children use the park,” the city said in a statement.
